“At my school we wear uniforms. I wanted to decorate my backpack to show people a side of me that they don’t normally get to see. It says that I like music and that I like to express myself through art. I wrote the Black Eyed Peas, Green Day and 2pac because I like their music and their lyrics mean a lot to me. I drew a broken heart, a peace sign, an abstract face and some other designs on it because I like drawing things that are unusual and colorful—anything that makes me different. ” —Jaanvi Sant, 13, La Cañada Preparatory School.
