drawing of a landscapeThis painting of the lake is similar to the lake I had went to with my little cousins In Mexico. One of my most memorable memories I had to connecting with Mother Nature is this trip I’m about to tell you about so sit tight and enjoy. It was a sunny day, birds chirping wind blowing a nice cold wind suns out flowers blossoming out, my cousins had been telling me they knew were a nice lake was and on nice beautiful day the lake would make you think about nature, and well it did sitting on the nice green grass looking out to the lake thinking, WOW before humans came and tore down trees, bushes, tore out beautiful flowers for their own benefits and so on, the world was breathtaking seeing what it was before makes you think how much longer do we still have these breathtaking places before somebody comes and takes it away? Seeing what the world was once before made me realized. We only have one world and we only got one shot at this world.

My name is Mia Muñoz. I was born in Fort Worth, Texas. I am in 9th grade. I attend Metro Opportunity High School. I love to stand up for what I feel is right. I do not allow anyone to dictate what I do and what I believe to be true. I spend my summers in Mexico, with my cousins and my grandparents. It is there that I am able to spend time in nature and reconnect with my family’s roots. As a young woman, I appreciate the opportunity to share my life’s experiences, through art and writing.
