Q. What makes Mary special?

Anjie Hughes: Mary is an excellent artist! Her creativity and skills are equal to those of students much older. She pushes herself to create exceptional projects and spends extra time outside of class to develop her skills. In addition, Mary is also a kind and considerate young lady. She notices when others are struggling and steps in to help.

Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Mary: When I grow up, I want to be an artist.

Q. What skills will you need to do this job?

Mary: I will need to have an open mind because I have to make things that everyone will enjoy. I can't just make things about topics that I care about, because not everyone feels the same way.

Q. Why do you want to do this job?

Mary: I want to be an artist because I will be able to express myself through my art. I can create anything I want and do things my own way.

Q. What will you do with your first paycheck?

Mary: Instead of buying something right away with my first paycheck, I would probably save it up and put it into buying a house.
