"I really want to be just a singer," Japiera said.

"Michael Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Beyonce, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber," Japiera said.
Japiera can't wait to try out for American Idol.
She is closely bonded with her sister, Jamya.
"We've been through a lot, a lot. And I just want to stay with her and make sure nothing happens to her. I'm hoping we get adopted and go to a nice home.">
9-year-old Jamya is also described as a sweet and loving child. Like her sister, Jamya loves school.
