Life at Twelve is where two kids get together and talk about what it is like to be twelve years old in the 21st Century. Ever feel like you are the only one going through something and nobody understands? Well these two do understand! They are going through it right along with you!
Join Alaina and Wesley with topics that range from advise on how to handle peer pressure to dealing with everyday events. Get fresh viewpoints from both hosts and see how kids can help kids get through the twelve year old days! Life at Twelve airs live every Monday at 2 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Kids Channel.
Hi, my name is Alaina Abram. I’m 11 years old and am in 6th grade. Some of the things that I enjoy are horseback riding, reading, and riding my quad at the dunes or in the desert. But my favorite thing to do is hang out with my friends! I am an only child so when I get the chance to spend time with kids my age I go for it! At school I have been in the student council and currently I’m in choir.
I recently just started up a company named P.S.E (Poop Scene Eliminator). It sounds gross but I don’t actually have to touch the stuff. I also volunteer almost every Sunday at my church with the preschool kids. They are very energetic but I love them! So, as you can see I am pretty busy!
My friends describe me as “Responsible, endearing, smart, funny, and witty.” I’m not sure if I am all of those, but I like the sound of it!
One of the biggest events in my life has been the death of my father. I found out my dad had cancer shortly before my 9th birthday. He was sick for almost 2 years before he died so we were able to spend a lot of time together, but I still miss him. Even though my dad is gone I still know that he loves me.
When I was three my mom was pregnant with my little sister Angelica. Mom went into labor early and had her way too soon so my sister passed away as well. I have made it through obstacles in life with my family, friends and most of all, God! It may seem like a horrible life, but I look forward to see what He has in store for me!
Hi, my name is Wesley Sylvester. I am 11 years old and was born in Phoenix, Arizona. I live in Litchfield Park with my brother who is 15 years old, my mom and dad, my grandma, my cat named Stormie and grandma’s dog named Georgie. I wear glasses, and I have blond hair and brown eyes.
In my spare time I love to read fantasy books like Harry Potter, build Legos, destroy Legos and play with Legos. Pretty much, I like Legos! I think nice, expensive and fast cars are the best. When it’s nice outside, we take family walks and I really enjoy our family movie nights. And I really, really like cookies.
We’ve always done lots together as a family. Every summer we swim in our pool and have fun camping in northern Arizona. I like traveling with my family too. We’ve been to really cool places like The Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, Washington, D.C., Disneyworld, and most recently a Mexican Riviera Cruise. In fact, on that cruise I volunteered for part of the magician’s and comedian’s shows. It was really fun!
I have played the piano for 3 years and plan to continue with my lessons. Church is a big part of our lives and I have been in several of our musical productions. I attend my Sunday School class called Christ Club 56, Kids Creation hour and Wednesday evening services. I’ve been a Cub Scout and been on the swim team.
