Metiki is a kind and friendly seventeen year-old, but usually very shy when you first meet her. Metiki enjoys sports, especially soccer, as well as art and music. Metiki is from Ethiopia and would like to be connected to her cultural heritage. One way to see Metiki shine is to ask her about her Ethiopian roots. Metiki would do well with a two-parent family where she is the youngest or only child, and in a household with structure, routines and supervision. If this describes your family, register for Orientation or contact us.








Alex, Age 15
