My name on my birth certificate is Jade Davis. Jade is a beautiful mineral. The color, so kind. Just like my name. My name welcomes you with warm arms. I like writing very much. I have six siblings—three younger and three older. Three live in Dacula, Georgia, and three live in Savannah. I am 11 years old, almost the youngest in the class. I am the funny/act-slow one in the class. Act-slow doesn’t mean a bad thing. Act-slow actually makes people happy and makes them laugh, just like I do. My name’s Jade Davis. Call me Jade.
