    I am 10 years old and in the 5th grade. I used to watch LHOTP all the time. Laura I. is a lot like me. We are both adventuresome, curious, and have lots of personality. My grandparents live in rural Montana, so I know lots about country life. I like animals, am a good friend, and am very creative. I hope you will consider me for this role and I look forward to hearing from you.
    All the best,
