“I have never been on an airplane or a train before, and I really would like to go on one of those,” Jayla explains. “My favorite things in school are going to the library and going out to recess because I get to talk to my friends at recess. And I also signed up for this club where you get to plan all the school dances and try out for cheerleading and get to be the mascot.”
