Wendy's Waiting Child: Javontae

Javontae is a very smart teen who has a love for music.

"I like to write songs because music is very important to the world," says Javontae.

And the 12 year-old is pretty handy, "I like to build and make more stuff to build and make the world a better place."

Which is why Javontae wants to someday become, "an architect."

He also has a love for animals, especially

"I have a pet turtle named Swimmie."

As for food, he's like most teens and not too picky, "all of them are my favorite food except for like, vegetables because some of them have a funny taste."
