Check out today's Photos from the Mission on the blog!
My 12 year old Team Mate is an exceptional cartoonist. In fact, she has created her own business, "Doodle Studios." She makes magnets and her classmates clamor to buy them. She would like to bring her magnets to give to children and adults at the mission to "brighten their day." according to her. Is there an opportunity for her to share her talent in this manner? She has suffered great loss herself in the death of her father, when she was 5, from cancer. She uses her art to help people feel better as she remembers how depressed she was, as well as the rest of her family when her father died. She began drawing pictures for her mom and brought a smile to her mom's face when she shared her art. You can see an interview Taryn & Jon Vanderford did with her on August 7th by going to TEDx Youth Lincoln Face Book Page. She was the youngest participant giving a talk at this event.
