She cannot live without success, family and friends. Introducing Jada! She is an 11 year old who likes doing sports such as basketball and soccer. She also loves art. She would describe herself as kind, friendly and athletic. One of her most heart warming memories was when her sister was born. Her sister is super sweet and very nice. Her favourite family vacation was when they went to Mexico.
"Jada, you are one of a kind! You always bring laughs and fun with you wherever you go. You are extremely creative and always up for something fun. My favourite trait of yours is your gentle sweetness. You are growing up so fast and I am so excited to watch you grow into the person you will be. You have changed the way I look at beautiful things. I often see something and it makes me think of you because I know that you would see the beauty in that as well."
- Auntie Chantelle
"Jada you are beautiful, tall, brave, intelligent, artistic girl growing into a beautiful young lady. You reminds me everyday that you are watching my every move and learning from me and all that is around you. Right now I love how you have moved through the transition of being a child to almost a teenager. I love how we are at level with each other, it makes me laugh with excitement that we have made it this far. Jada you are brave because you take on any challenge and are determined to do your best. Don't trade anything for approval. Don't think you need to be anyone else but yourself, you can never fail at being yourself. Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart and strong enough to live the life you've always imagined." - Mom
"You are very responsible, reliable and a mature thinker for your age, you reason well and have a good common sense. You are smart and worldly, taking an interest in many things all over the world. Jada, you have made my life so much richer by being my first grandchild. I have been able to see you grow and become a very positive, attractive young lady! My greatest wish for you Jada, is that you will continue to be as balanced and positive as you are now. You will enjoy a rewarding career and create a fulfilled personal life." - Grandmother

I loved photographing Jada and putting this special project together for her. Thank you for sharing Who you are with us!
Ask yourself what are the things you've always wanted someone to say to you, but no one ever has. Ask yourself how many portraits were taken of you when you were a tween (ages 10-13). I know for myself there are not very many. Quite often when I am visiting my Mom I dig out the old photo albums and look through all the pictures of when I was little. There are many photographs of me as a baby and a child but not too many of when my siblings and I when we were in our tweens or teenage years for sure. In came the idea for the Who I Am project. This is a project for tweens to celebrate who they are and what they enjoy doing currently. This project is paired with beautiful portraits and quotes from loved ones about the tween.
