How I've painted my future in the rough sketch of life

The Thumbnail: In art, the hand can never execute anything higher than the heart can imagine. -ALL ABOUT ME

My name is Alondra Lucia Paredes. I am fourteen years old, and have varying interests, skills, and personality traits. My Personality Color is ORANGE. This means that I am artistic; I love to express myself in more ways than one. I am a showgirl. I am also creative; I try to think outside the box and do things that aren't normally done. I'm also fun-loving and try to make every situation a fun and bubbly one, and try to make every person around me happy. I am a multitasker, and I am very adaptable!



As you can tell by observing which side of my brain is most colored and creative, I am mostly right brained. This means I am creative, artistic, and blooming with an interesting personality.
