At 5'7 and a half Josiah is the tallest of the Parris kids even though he is only twelve. Josiah is a leader, the first born boy. He is quiet at times and wants to be a writer or screenwriter when he is grown up. He also loves to draw and watch animated movies. One thing the poor boy has had to endure is people mispronouncing his name he has heard Joziah, Jo-see-ah and Hosiah so each time we are at the doctors or dentist its always a joke what name he will end up with.
