Her Story

Siena Grace Xaeli Hopkins-Prest

Siena's Story :

Hi my name is Siena,  and I have quite the lifelong story.

My full name is Siena Grace Xaeli Hopkins-Prest.  I am 12 years old and i absolutely love to write.

I was born in the North West territories in YellowKnife, at Stanton territorial hospital.  I lived in a small town known as Betchico.  My mom and I are so close, we have the strongest relationship a mother and daughter could have. Without her I would be so lost. We lived inside a small apartment in a school for 3 years. I had a few best friends up there but my closest one was named Hailey. Our moms were really good friends so we spent a good lot of time together. We became so close.

When I was about 5 years old my mom and I moved to Edmonton Alberta. We only spent about a year there until we moved to Peterborough, Ontario. We moved here because my mom’s boss described it as the most beautiful place you’ll see. And we also moved for her work. His name is Stuart Shanker. Stuart is a lot like an uncle to me and introduced me to so much. He has a daughter Sam, a son Sasha and a wife Ginny.

In August I got really sick, I was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks, they still haven’t ruled out what I had, it was quite the adventure.

 I go to Adam Scott public school, with my best friend Zoe.  Zoe is the closest thing to a sister I could possibly have. We laugh so much together.

My biological father lives all the way in Saskatchewan, but I really appreciate and love how much he tries to keep in contact. I Would normally see him once a year but because of covid-19 i didn’t get the chance to. My mother is married to my stepdad, and he is a really loving and supportive father for me.

I am so thankful that I get to share my writing to all of you!
