Profile: Little Kiara

I, Desiree Watson, have interviewed a young girl in the Bronx named Kiara. She is 8 years old and lives with her mom. Kiara loves the Bronx and also enjoys attending school. She attends C.E.S 53x which is also in the Bronx. Kiara describes the Bronx as a place of wonder. In the Bronx, she says that she gets to be herself and no one tells her how to behave a certain way.

I asked her questions like: where would she rather be besides the Bronx? How is life for her in the Bronx? Does she enjoy living in the Bronx? Kiara answers seemed very well put.

Kiara doesn’t want to leave the Bronx. Life for her in the Bronx is great and she wouldn’t want to change that. She enjoys living in the Bronx. Kiara wants to grow up and become the president of the United States!
