My name is Taya. I am currently a junior at Jenison High School. I am on both the sideline and competitive cheer team at school. I love to hang out with my family and friends in my free time. Besides Aiden, I have two other siblings.
My favorite activities to do with my brother Aiden are going swimming in our pool, playing video games, going out to the movies, or going to get food. Aiden always has the biggest smile on his face. He’s the sweetest ever. He is a senior this year at Hudsonville High School. His favorite thing is watching WWE wrestling every Friday night.
Aiden also loves designer brands. One of his favorites is Gucci. This inspired my design a lot and is why I chose the “designer genes” phrase. Anything designer is very special to him and having a shirt made for him while incorporating things he loves was very important to me. The design on the back is three arrows representing the three 21st chromosomes, and it represents rising up and moving forward.
