Her favorites being, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind,” by Dr. Seuss and “Words have no power to impress the mind without the exquisite horror of their reality,” by Edgar Allen Poe. Ayleah strives to be the most optimistic person in the room and likes to remind everyone that they are precious cinnamon rolls too great for this world.
