“I’m a natural talent. Dancing, a tiny bit of gymnastics, and I’m really good at drawing and decorating. And I’m also good at fashion.”

But the most important thing for Symar is finding a supportive family.

“I mean, support is one thing, but loving and caring ties — all that ties into support. When you care for somebody as well, that’s an extra push. That’s like, ‘hey, I’m here. I care about you, I want you to succeed.'”
