My name is Ellyn. I am 7 years old.
That’s me holding a pencil and a paper. Yes, I love to draw.
That is me and my mother. We are going to the Children International center. She is a volunteer and she always takes me to this beautiful place where there are doctors, dentists, medicines, a library full of books, computers, a playground and lots of fun stuff for kids like me.
But for me, what I love doing here is practicing how to draw. I joined the arts program here and I love it. I get to learn so many things about drawing.
When I get back home, I gather my friends and teach them what I have learned about drawing. I love playing the teacher, and my friends are my students. My dream is that someday I will become a teacher. But it doesn’t mean I have to wait to get older before I can teach.
My mother told me I can always do small things to help others. Each one of us can help. Even kids like me can help. So, every week, I invite my friends to our house and teach them what I know. It’s a fun game, but we also get to learn so many things.
Like superheroes, we too have different powers we can use to help others. Teaching and drawing are the superpowers I have to help make the world a colorful and happy place. What’s yours?
