My name is Emery Lopez. I am in 18 in the 12th grade at Valencia and I’m happy where I’m at because everything around me makes me happy. I’ve learned to not surround myself around negativity because that’s what will bring one down in life and that’s why I draw. Drawing is my passion, and it gets me in a good mood, teaching me a lot. Like never giving up until I have learned a technique, same way we aren’t supposed to give up in life, like a line of graphite that never stops, keep going, don’t give up.
