“LAS means a lot to me ‘cause they’re like the family I never had. Like, they always ask how I’m doing with everything going on… and also giving hugs.”


“I’d like to learn to draw correctly proportioned bodies to look as if they will pop right out of the paper. I would also like to learn to sculpt objects that are useful and won’t just collect dust. I care about my peers and I want to treat them the way they would like to be treated. I like that I am able to have fun and make new friends and enjoy my teachers. I like being able to work with compassion and generosity.

I’m so thankful that I was selected from so many other students to be interviewed and then picked for the programs.”
