Jasmine Pham, Samantha Kerr, Angela Boothe, and Matthew Jones have been selected as winners of the BYMS PTA Reflections Competition for artwork and reflections with the theme of  “What’s Your Story?” and soon competing will be at a  district level judge.

In an interview with Samantha Kerr she stated, “ I incorporated the theme in my entry by drawing images such as a seashell to represent my love for the ocean, and music notes to represent my love for music. Each item I drew represented a small piece of my story,” when asked how she incorporated her theme.

“In my drawing, it shows a picture of a dog at the beach. The girl represents me and the dog represents my cousin’s dog, Coco. Beside me is an easel and a box of paint, this shows the viewer that I enjoy painting and doing my art at the beach, stated Jasmine Pham, BYMS eighth grade students about the inspiration  of her art entry.

“In general, my artwork combines the two things I love doing in a place where I can always be myself,” added Jasmine Pham in an interview with the Matador Messenger when asked how her piece fits the theme “What’s Your Story?”

Eighth grade student Angela Booth stated  in an interview with the Matador Messenger, “ My daily life and passion really gave me inspiration,” when asked what inspired her piece.

“Being on the West Coast and seeing the beautiful sights it inspired me to write my paper with the help of my mom believing in me that I could write it,” stated Matthew Jones when asked what inspired his written entry.
