Grant Me Hope: Bryauna

Bryauna takes her studies seriously, shines on the basketball court, and is searching for a forever family who she describes as caring and accepting.

We meet the resilient and confident teen this week in Grant Me Hope.

Bryauna is 15 years old and describes herself as having a great personality.

She likes to relax her mind by shooting hoops. 

“I like to play basketball. If I’m frustrated or have a lot on my mind, playing basketball helps me relieve some of that stress,” said Bryauna.

Bryauna has big dreams for herself.

“I want to be a business woman. But I want to do something in the medical field. I also want to open up a home for kids who are in foster care and don’t have anywhere to go. I also want to be a cosmetologist,” explained Bryauna.

She also understand the value of getting a good education.

“I like school, I do really well in school. I like it because my grades are important to me, and that’s the way out. And I feel like my education is going to let me do what I want to do,” said Bryauna.

Bryauna enjoys going to church and hopes to find a family to share her love of God with.

“I love church because I like to learn about god, and I feel like every time I’m having a problem, that’s who I go to is god. I pray.”

Bryauna is hoping to find a family to call her own.

“I don’t really have a preference in what kind of family I want. I just want somebody who is going to understand me and just want me for me. Hope is important. And hope to me, means faith, and my faith is in God. And I feel like me having faith in god is going to lead me to doing better things in life and become better,” explained Bryauna.

Grant Me Hope is a collaboration between WWTV, Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange and the business community — all working together to find foster children a forever home.
