Child in Need: Teen looking for a fun female mentor

Here is a child from the Brainerd area who is waiting for a Kinship Partner mentor.

Roxy is 14 and lives with her mom, step-dad, and younger brother. She likes swimming, roller blading, arts and crafts, bike riding, and going on picnics.

Roxy said she wants a Kinship mentor who is a young gal and is kind, creative, and active.

Her mom says that Roxy is shy and she feels that Roxy will benefit by having an adult mentor to share new experiences with.
