Markayla, age 15, is an active young woman with a mega-watt smile and sparkling eyes.  She can be very shy at times and at other times outspoken.  Markayla loves writing in her journal, drawing, and listening to music.  Markayla takes great pride in her personal appearance and she is interested in fashion and likes to look her best.  She hopes to have a career in the fashion industry when she gets older.  Markayla would like to be adopted by a family that would allow her to have ongoing contact with her biological family members. She would thrive in a structured, consistent home with a family who has a positive outlook where she is the youngest or only child.
