What I wish people would know about me?
I like to bake sweets. I find it very calming.
Also love to eat my creations.
Each part of my drawing has a different meaning. The bandana has
a face on it. The face is Ms. Lucia (my MHC teacher) because all the
skills she taught me are stuck in my head. The belt and necklace have
crosses on them because that shows the hope I have in Jesus. The shirt
has a sign that explains all the hope I have.
The faces on the pants are
my mom and dad. They help me move along. The microphone is to show
how much I like to sing. The hills are the troubles I have overcome. The
mountains show how much I have grown. This is why I drew this picture
the way it is.
I have three people who are very important to me. My mom and dad are
very important to me. They love me for who I am. Ms. Lucia is also very
important to me. She makes me laugh when I am sad. Without Ms. Lucia,
I would not be where I am now. These people are important to me.
People ask me, “What is important to you?” Hope is important to me.
I used to not have a lot of hope, but when my family came into my life,
my hope grew. I have hope that I will go home and be a successful person.
This is why hope is important to me.
I enjoy lots of things. I enjoy singing. I like to write songs. I also enjoy
playing the guitar. This is what I enjoy because it makes me happy.
I wish people knew I know how to play the drums. I used to play for a
church. I know how to play the song “Break Every Chain” on the drums.
This is what I wish people knew about me.
There are many things that are important to me.
My bed is the most important to me because I get
to sleep some more. I don’t like when I don’t get sleep.
I get grumpy really easily. My bed is a good bed to
sleep in. I like when I get rest so I don’t get grumpy,
and when I get grumpy, I start to yell.
I enjoy doing ASL (American Sign Language) because
it is fun. I would like to sign to a deaf person one day
so I can get to know them more often. One day I would
like to work with people that are deaf. I think it would
be fun to do ASL with other people.
My mom and stepdad are important to me because
they help me out. They love me a lot.
I want people to understand that I am a preteen and
not a baby. I would like other people to try to respect
me as a preteen and not a baby.
I have a cousin who is important to me because she is the one I grew
up with and she is the one I can trust the most. Another thing that is
important to me is my shoe collection because they make my feet
stand out. I also love to buy shoes. I think they finish my outfit.
What I wish people knew about me is that I can keep my word and stick
to what I say. I want people to know that I try to be honest.
I enjoy playing football because it is my favorite sport. It is one of my
favorite things to do. Another reason I enjoy football is because I am
good at it. It is an exciting game to me.
There are multiple meanings to my picture. Praying represents hope
that the rain will wash away the emotions. The rain drops are washing
away the negative feelings, such as anger, fear, and sadness. The dog
tags signify commitment. If you commit to something, you will succeed.
What I wish people knew about me is that I can play football. My
dream is to be a professional football player. I also want to be a
quarterback. People just laugh. They think I can’t do it, but I think
I can do it. I want to make my family proud of me.
What is important to me is my phone because it keeps me calm.
I can take selfies and go on the internet. My mom even thinks I am
responsible to have a phone because I show her that I have the
responsibility to have a phone. If I go on something I am not
supposed to go on, she will take it away and I agree with that.
Who is important to me? My cousins, because they are always there
for me. They’re only 8 and 7 but they are very smart, and now when
someone hurts them or when something hurts them, they get back
on their feet, just like me.
I enjoy to play outside with my two dogs and my pig. I like to throw
the stick so my dogs can go get it. Sometimes my pig Mindy will go with
them. I will put Mindy on my lap and swing. She loves when I do that.
I like it when I pet them and they like it too. I like to be alone when I am
mad. I also like to make friends. I always want food.
The reason why I have my phone in my hand is because my phone is
important to me. I also have houses in the background to represent
mine and my cousins’ houses. The blue house with black outlines is
my cousins’ house. The maroon house is my house. The headphones
are there because I like to listen to music.
There are a lot of people who are important to me, but the most
important person is my mom. The reason is because she loves
me unconditionally. Even when I do things wrong, she hugs me and
says, “It’s OK. I could never stay mad at you.” Another reason is that
she accepts me for who I am and she loves me because I am not
perfect and she tells me to embrace it.
I have a lot of important things in my life, but school is very
important to me. If I don’t go to school, I can’t get a good education.
Then I can’t go to college, and if I don’t go to college, I can’t become
a fashion designer. Another reason that school is important to me
is because it has structure.
I enjoy quite a few things, but I love
music. I love to sing in my room while listening to the radio. Music
makes me happy. This makes me happy because you can express
yourself through music. There are all types of music; music can go
with any type of mood.
I wish people knew more about my neurological disease, called
neurofibromatosis. This is a disease when tumors grow in your
body. I have had six or seven surgeries. These tumors wrap
around the nerves in your face. Mine have wrapped around the
optic nerve. During this process, the nerves in my smile have
slowly started to fade because the tumor was wrapped around
the nerves of my smile. I have a small incision above my right eye.
There is a medicine trying to be approved to shrink the tumors.
So far, the people who were in the study have had great results.
