DETROIT (WXYZ) — Joy is the name Sienna likes to go by which is appropriate for this 15-year-old in foster care because she likes joyful music.

“I like to sing. I love gospel,” she said.

R and B, hip hop, and pop are among her other favorite music genres.

“I have one artist that I’m in love with – Justin Bieber,” she said smiling.

“I also love to dance. If you wanted me to work out, just blast music,” Joy added.

She loves board games – especially Monopoly and Sorry.

Drawing and coloring are also some of her artistic endeavors.

When she grows up, she’d like to become a cook or work in the health care industry.

“I want to probably be a nurse and work in a big hospital or something like that or work with pets,” said Joy.

“I definitely want to do college,” she said. “Need to get your master’s degree and stuff like that.”

Her worker said Joy is a very sweet, kind, and friendly young lady. “She is very engaging,” the worker added.

Joy would like to share her positive personality with a forever family sooner than later.

“If I one wish it would be to be in a safe home life with a Dad and a Mom to help me with my work and the needs that I have,” Joy said.

She’d also be open to an older brother and sister and a family who has a pet or two – maybe a cat or a dog.

“I just want to be able to get the help and the love that I need,” she said softly.

“I have had that, but not a lot. And I just hope that I get that soon,” she explained.
