Claudia Quinn Yuen Pruscino My amazing gong gong

Age 9

9-12 year olds

This is a portrait of my gong gong. No one I know really knows what a gong gong is, but in Chinese it means a grandpa on the mother’s side of the family. I love him so much. He is very kind and caring, not only to me and our family but to his patients that he cares for at hospital. He’s been a big part of my life since I was born. He takes me swimming in the ocean, we go on bush walks together, he buys me ice-cream and treats, and often makes me laugh! He is the best gong gong ever.
