Wednesday’s Child: Jesenia

By Larry Kane
Produced by Timothy McLaughlin

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Jesenia may seem mild-mannered at first, but this ten-year-old girl is a bundle of energy.

“I’m a gymnast and a cheerleader,” she says.  “On bars, I swing on them and I have to land on them and balance on them, and then I do a front-flip off of them, and they’re really high.  I do cartwheels on the balance beam.”

It’s enough to give anyone else vertigo, but she is fearless.

“It’s scary at first but you’ll get used to it,” she advises with a smile.

And Jesenia would love a family that shares her sense of adventure.

“Like, go to amusement parks. I would like to have my family and I hang out together, like go out.  Not all the time, but just be energetic — not always just sitting in front of a TV,” she says.
