Happy Being Me By Alyssa Jimenez (Age 16)

“I am different because I’m an outlier.  I am constantly taking the path less taken.  Everyone else fits nicely into categories and groups and I am that one piece in the puzzle that doesn’t fit.  My drawing represents my outside persona which is happy, free-spirited with coachella vibes.  My outgoing nature and my bold clothing represent my culture and where I come from. We are loud and celebrate life. I’m proud to be Latina and Haitian. I was born to celebrate who I am and art allows me to express my differences.”  –Alyssa Jimenez, RBC Flaunt It Award (Art finalist)
