"The Future in my Head- My Dream": The astronaut you see is the very same girl I look at every day and every night in my sweet & beautiful dreams. I decided to draw her as its a reflection of my future... I believe possibilities are endless and hence I matter!!
Gaurangi G., grade 5
"Love Matters": My artwork for the theme "I Matter Because" is made from crochet. The doll in the middle represents me. The pink heart represents that I have a working heart and feelings. The Pencil presents that I know a lot of things and have a brain. It also shows that I have more to learn in the future. The stick figures represent my friends and family - the orange ones are my family, and the pink ones are my best friends. It shows that they care for me and love me. I matter because I'm surrounded by people who love me and things that I love.
