AMIGUITA OF THE WEEK ~ Kira*

Kira*, affectionately known around Amigos as "hormiguita" (little ant) for her small size, is an energetic bundle of joy. Kira has a smile that lights up a room and a laugh that's infectious. She is one of the most ticklish kids at Amigos. She loves playing with the 'big girls' in her dorm, especially her two older sisters. Kira is also quite smart. She is picking up English quickly in 1st grade in the BECA (bilingual) program at the Amigos School. One fun fact about Kira is that tomorrow (November 8th) is her 7th birthday!
