PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Tajinae dreams of one day being a doctor or a fashion model.  She already has a jump on that second one:

“I model for Role Models, actually.  I auditioned and I got the part.”

But for Tajinae, her work with Role Models is not only about glamour.

“It’s a group of teens and they come together to make a difference.  And we model for younger kids and older teens and inspire them to do good things with their life.”

This athletic 13-year-old also loves playing basketball and football.  And in her spare time (!), she loves writing.

“I write about my life and stuff, and what I’ve been through.  I get to write my feelings down.”

With all of her ambition, Tajinae is looking for a family who can help guide her.

“People that will support me and encourage me to reach my goals.”
