LOS ANGELES - Cristeina (2007) is a personable child. She enjoys the outdoors and going to the movies, mall, library and the park. She also enjoys drawing; anything artsy, listening to music, putting puzzles together, and reading (especially Korean Comic books). Cristeina is always up for exploring new things and different dimensions of the arts. With that in mind, Cristeina was given a chance to see a theater production media day where members of the media interviewed the cast of the Lythgoe Family Panto’s 10-Year Anniversary production of A Snow White Christmas.
Cristeina got to play the role of our entertainment reporter, and meet and interview some of her favorite celebrities, such as Olivia Sanabia of the Disney Channel, Michael Campion of NetFlix’s Fuller House and music legend, Michelle Williams of Destiny’s Child. She did an excellent job! While exploring the arts was foremost on her mind, Cristeina has now developed an interest in behind the scenes production work.
In our interview with Cristeina, she expressed that she desires to have a family that can provide and nurture her interests and she was eager to show us some of her artwork. In her own words, “…a family that loves the arts as much as I do." Cristeina would like an active family that doesn’t just sit in front of the TV but rather goes out to do things and explores – just like what she does now with her current foster family. Cristeina can benefit from a family that is supportive and integrates the home environment with structure.
Cristeina hopes to attend a performance arts high school and wishes to play the violin. A family that will guide her toward college goals, continue to nurture her gifts in the art and facilitate those opportunities, is what Cristeina deserves to have.
