Her personality is a bit introverted. She likes to play with other children in the neighborhood, but due to her gentle personality, some children bully her during play, so her foster mother sometimes does not allow her to go out. She is well-behaved and follows directions. She is now attending school, she is said to be in “senior kindergarten.” Her foster mother is reportedly to be a countrywoman with little to no education, therefore she cannot help Daniela with her studies and homework and as a result Daniela is a bit behind her peers in school. Her favorite activities are: singing, dancing and other kindergarten activities. She loves to go to school and play outside.

In this picture Daniela was approximately six years old:
