    In my piece indiginous women are weaving traditional clothing. The women remind us of our ancestors who produced ceramic pots. Our ancestors were masters of pottery. They used to paint the vases with paints and drew animals on them.

    My dad works in construction, my mom works selling tacos and my sister and I go to school. In my free time I like to read, play and watch TV. I also like to go to school and spend time with friends. I don’t like that my parents work so hard. To preserve the environment, I do not burn garbage and I do not contaminate the river. My goals are to study and graduate from school. I want to be a veterinarian to take care of street animals.
