Salena is a 16 year old junior in high school and is in a relative foster placement with her older sister. She loves dance and has taken ballet lessons for many years, and is now a part of her high's school's elite dance team. She does great in school, and still finds time for other extracurricular activities including serving as a mentor to freshman students, working on the school newspaper, and being part of the Music Honor Society. Her other hobbies include playing the marimba, video editing, and learning about different religions. Dance is an essential part of her life, but the fees to be a part of the team have been hard for her older sister (who is her relative foster provider) to fulfill. She has been doing fundraisers and trying to save money to cover the expenses, but has been struggling to hit their goal.
