I was born in Albuquerque and moved to Alamo Navajo Reservation in sixth grade. My mom still lives in Albuquerque. I am on the track team and I skateboard. We just won 4th place in the 1600 Medely. I draw for fun and to find some peace inside. I entered a painting in the Heard Museum Student show and won an honorable mention and some prize money. It made me feel good.
My self portrait shows me feeling sad about something I don’t want to share. That’s why I draw to express my feelings when I can’t talk about it. I don’t think I would do be able to manage as well without art. This is my life.
