When she grows up Lizzie would like to be a fashion designer. Her favourite hero is Little Miss Sunshine because she always makes people happy and she has freckles : )
I asked Grace what she thinks makes a good person? What are the rules? She replied, "Kind, selfless, caring, thinks of others before themselves, nice". Her hero is "Taylor Swift because not only is she a great singer, but she socialises with her fans and gives some of them presents for Christmas!" Grace's favourite saying is "In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take..." Beautiful.

A favourite saying of Madison's is "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory". Just like a good portrait!
Olivia is 15, well almost 16 years old. Her hobbies include tennis and photography. She studies hard and gets results. I asked Olivia what makes a good person...
