My name is Ahliyah Harmony-Rayne. I was named after an African American singer and song writer Aaliyah Dana Haughton who died eight months after I was born and the name Aaliyah means Highest, most exalted one.


My second name, Harmony, was named after a vampiress character from a TV show called “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” that my mother and father were big fans of at the time.

I am considered multi-talented by most. Apparently I am also inspiring and influential to others although I did not know this until recently.

My personality is easy going, funny, calm, responsible, nervous, respectful, cautious, always use my manners, feel empathy for others, I am friendly to all who are friendly to me.

Two sister’s always called me names and threatened to kill my family and I.
 
Another girl is always putting me down with comments about my hair, my clothes on free dress day, my taste in music and shows, it took me a long time to realize they’re jealous of something I have.

No I’m not old enough. I plan on having part time job when I’m older.
