‘My Dad and The Rolling Stones’
By Sonia Santiago

"My work shows resilience, because as a kid I grew up listening to classic rock whenever my dad was in “grind mode” or down and I noticed it would lift him up. One of my favorite class rock bands is The Rolling Stones. My father always told me to keep your head up stand tall and roll on through life like a rolling stone. Whenever I’m upset I play classic rock to ease my mind and uplift my spirit. I made the background black and white checkered design for the “classic vibe”, shaped and cut out a cardboard piece and painted the rolling stones tongue to mock the hard times, and fire using tissue paper to express the fierceness and boldness of how strong I am.
