“I love color. I want to draw all the time, I like to draw. I close my eyes and I want to draw a tiger, I want to draw a zebra. when I draw I’m smiling. Colors make me happy. I love the bright colors of new markers. I like to draw things that move people. I care about people, my heart is broken when people are sick. I like to make people happy with my pictures.”
