Hazel is 14 years old and lives in a children’s center in Eastern Europe. She arrived at the center when she was 10 after her mother died from cancer and her father was not able to take care of her. Despite a difficult childhood and the neglect she faced from her family, she maintains a positive attitude towards life and those around her.

She is in excellent physical and mental health. She speaks politely to adults and answers questions meaningfully and logically. She studies English at school and is able to understand grammar, read and write.

Hazel is a radiant girl with a wonderful smile. She is inquisitive, communicative and easy to get along with. She dreams of finishing school and attending cosmetology school to own her own beauty salon.

She likes to draw, hang out with her friends, watch movies and play games on her phone in her free time. She also attends dances and participates in sports and other events at school and the children’s center.
