Grace WilliamsGRACE WILLIAMS
Hey I’m Grace. I’m 13 going on 14, live in the Los Angeles area, but my roots come from New York. I love playing sports such as volleyball, tennis, basketball, soccer, and track. I’m not the best at soccer but I still enjoy playing for fun. A few more hobbies of mine are listening to music, hanging with my friends, and of course like most other teenage girls, painting my nails. I have four little dogs named Cali, Betty, Sunshine, and Bruce.
