We met 15 year old Dascia at the Monongalia County Canine Adoption Center because one day she would like to work with animals up for adoption.
I've just liked animals since I was younger. I feel like I can relate to them.
She's more of a cat person than a dog person, though.
Her favorite subjects in school are English and reading… and one teacher in particular has helped her develop her love for literature.
"She got me started on a lot of different series, like Maximum Ride by James Patterson and all the Hunger Games books and everything," Dascia said.
Though she reads a lot, Dascia doesn't have a favorite text.
"I don't really have a favorite book but I like reading about philosophy and psychology," she said.
Dascia said she'd like a family she can do anything and everything with, including travel. She's not even picky about brothers or sisters.
"Just a family that would… Have acceptance," Dascia said.
She would like a family that's would allow her to have at least one pet.
