Just Like You

by: Maddy D., 3rd Grade, Lakeview Elementary School - Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Kathy Fenton

I am the tallest one in my class. All of my friends are shorter than me. I don't fit in that well. My friends still like me. My mom always tells me ONE DAY they will be as tall as you. My best friend who doesn't go to school is as tall as me. But she says she is not the tallest of the girls. My friends still like me the way I am, and that's all that matters.

Artist Statement

This is a self-portrait. Even though we are all different on the outside, we're the same on the inside.
