bio: Hello, my name is Abbey Michelle Slater.
I am 9 years old and I attend Matoaka Elementary School. I’m in the 4th grade. My hobbies are playing with my pet dog ( Maltese/ Shiztu) and discovering unique hacks for fun.
The piece I submitted tells the story of our country that is divided. Our world has changed so much that we different opinions and forget that we need to be united. So, I drew “Lady United” as she bares the the United States flag on her wings. When she flaps her wings and fly she sprinkles peace and harmony to everyone.
hobbies: My hobbies are drawing various things on my tablet and watching unique hacks to try at home. I hope to resume other activities soon after the pandemic is over. I aspire to become an ophthalmologist one day.
