Name: Ma'at Qadaffi
Location: Silver Spring, MD
Nominated by: BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT
Ma'at is a special Girls Award winner! We've watched her create amazing paintings with her mom all year long and she only recently turned 4 - making her our youngest award recipient! We love seeing young girls enthusiastic about art and creativity and also mothers who support them in their artistic desires!
"Ma'at, known to her family and friends as 'Mighty' is naturally creative. She has had a love for art ever since she was old enough to scribble on paper. It is so amazing to watch her sharpen her artistic skills by paying close attention to the smallest details in the world around her. She absolutely loves to draw and cut out her own doll babies and their accessories. Ma'at recently finished up her first canvas series named "Hair Paintings" just in time to share for her 4th birthday! Great job " - Mommy
