"I’m a flower that bloomed from the mud" - YANO

My name is Addison Foster. I'm 16 and currently attend LEHS. I live in Elgin however I've also lived in Charlotte, North Carolina and Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

My friends are precious to me. They inspire me to do better and help drive me towards my goals. My grandmother also inspires me. However she is no longer here physically to support me, but I like to remember how she would push me so that I can push myself.

I also really enjoy nature and going outside. By going outside I mostly mean going outside to read or just to breathe to be honest. I enjoy reading a whole lot and tend to read books by Haruki Murakami, because he's my favorite author. I'm also a huge animal lover!

My hobbies are varied. I enjoy drawing, scrap booking, and watching anime or Netflix. I also dance and play soccer! In my freetime I will either do something at home or volunteer at the animal shelter.

I don't have any pictures of me dancing or playing soccer. :(

I like to think I'm a person that likes to look on the positive side of things! I've been told I'm a good person to be around and bubbly! I'd also say I'm brave.
