Gabriela Batista

Student

My name is Gabriela Batista. I am a cartoonist and inspiring animator that wishes to make people happy through my artistic skill. I grew up finding that drawing let me express myself and would allow me to escape the harsh reality of my life. Growing up in a bad neighborhood it was hard to do what I loved but I found that drawing made those who were having a hard time smile and be happy for the short period of time I could. Growing up watching cartoons made my life easier and brought happiness to my childhood. Once I got to middle school I knew I wanted to get into the Art and Design high school to work towards my dream of becoming an animator of Cartoon Network creating my own show. And I wish t do this to bring happiness to as many people as I can.
