Title of the Artwork: I am rooted


Artists Statement: I matter because I am rooted. Rooted strong into my culture, rooted into humanity and empathy. I respect elders and believe in family values. I also believe no matter how tall you grow in life, it's important to be rooted. We will achieve great heights in life. But it's important to remember where we start from. I clicked this picture because trees are great example of that. Start out from a seed and grow to be a giant tree. But they are always rooted.

Title of the Artwork: Special

Artists Statement: I matter because I am special. I am unique in my own ways and have talents special to myself. If that was a seed, I can sow it to become the best version of myself and help others around me. My seed grows and multiplies, dropping seeds of hope in the people that I impact as well. I matter because I am unique and can strive to constantly improve myself to help the world become a better place. I matter because I have a purpose as does everyone else and we can all help grow a garden and spread love.
