Hi, I’m Maryam, and I’m 9 years old. I really, really like playing sports, especially football. Art is super fun too! I enjoy using colored pencils and markers at Lotus. I make drawings of the outside world and fruits. At Lotus, doing art is the best because the teachers let us do whatever we want. I love that! My favorite colors are purple, blue and turquoise. I don’t know why, but they’re just really nice colors. The coolest thing at Lotus is seeing other students making amazing stuff. I have some artworks at home that I made at Lotus. They’re like monsters and animals, and I’m really proud of them. Sometimes, I feel a little shy showing them to my friends, and I get nervous showing them to my family. But guess what? They like them! I even gave some to my mom’s friends, and she put them in her office. I felt so happy about that. One day, I want to be a football player and an artist at the same time. Maybe, my artworks will be in a museum! For kids like me who love art, I’d say always pick the best colors and focus when you’re creating something. It’s so much fun!
