LOS ANGELES - Taliyha (2007) is a dynamic teen in foster care who wishes to be a part of a forever family.
Most teens appreciate trending fashions and accessories and Taliyha is no exception. Trying out a new role as VIP can be a bit unusual but Taliyha geared up to experience the role of a celebrity surrounding the Academy Awards AKA Oscars at Doris Bergman’s 12th Annual Valentine Romance Pre-Oscar Luxury Lounge and Party at the Fig & Olive Restaurant in West Hollywood.
In addition to a fabulous luncheon, there were also skincare gifts from Beauty Stat, luxury candles by Milena, “blessings” in the form of spiritual bracelets by My Saint My Hero, specialty organic snacks from Appletinies; and of course, our favorite environmentally conscious jewelry from Twisted Silver. Taliyha even got to meet the legendary, Lou Ferrigno.
Like most teens, Taliyha is image-conscious and is very detailed about what she wears and how she presents herself. Although she can be a little shy and reserved initially, once comfortable in new situations, she matches her vibrancy with the occasion. One of Taliyha’s favorite activities is to cook and she is interested in a career in the culinary arts.
Taliyha hopes to find a family that will accept her unconditionally and someone who won’t let her go. She has had some positive role models in foster care, so she would also like to consider becoming a social worker and even foster a child someday.
