Scarlett Li My mum and me

Age 8

5-8 year olds

I chose to draw my mum because she is a very important part of my life and has inspired me in many different ways. She cares for my education and my life skills. I am in this competition because of her. She is the best mum in the whole wide world. I dedicate this picture to her and to my family, the ones who made this possible.
