Nominated by: Mom
"Kayana has been painting for a year. I noticed she would watch me while I painted and tried to recreate some of my paintings. Then she started asking for more art supplies and to paint everyday. She paints her feelings and whatever is on her mind! She is the bravest little girl I know. She walks to the beat of her own drum and I see her art surpassing even mine. She loves to express herself and I believe she embodies everything about a black girl who paints. She knows there are no limitations to what she can do and she’s showing me daily that even I can be encouraged by her.
Kayana, I love you! The possibilties that are out there for you right now are bigger than you can imagine. I want you to remember to always reach for the sky and above." - Mommy
