HANNAH

HARDING

Age 16

My name is Hannah Harding, I am 16 years old, and I am an Artist. I really feel awesome when I get to express myself through art. I take photos, paint, draw but when my art teacher shows me a new way to use my talent like different ways to use acrylic paint techniques, I really feel myself come alive. When I was young I was diagnosed with A.D.D., Dyslexia, and have a low verbal expression score, so there were so many times in school I felt not good enough. When I do art, I feel alive, free, and enough! My mom saw this talent and I was really wanting to try doing tattoos, so my mom trained me on safely doing tattoos. I understand not many 16 year old's get to do this, but my mom understands how I feel and what I feel like when I get to show off my talent. I love expressing myself this!
