Interview with Lia Rane
Hi! My name is Lia Miner. I'm 17 years old. I live in Marlington, West Virginia. I live with my mom, my mom's boyfriend, and 5 siblings.
I like to sing, workout, dance, read books and listen to music. My favorite book series is Demigods & Magicians and Percy Jackson's Greek Gods both written by Rich Riordan. My favorite songs are Bridges and Can You See by Fifth Harmony and Melodies by Madison Beer.
I play the flute and I'm a great organizer. I just love to get stuff done.
My dream for the future is to be a model and singer because I want to show people that I really have talent. I want the whole world to know me so I like to put myself out there and try new things like acting. I love trying new stuff.
I've raised money for IMDSA and jump started my modeling career by asking only for copies of the images and a $25 donation to IMDSA. So far I've made a $59.00 donation to IMDSA.
Here's an example of my work.
