[Google Translate] In my drawing I wanted to represent this means of transportation, used by the pioneers, as a symbol of faith of all those first members of the Church who made the decision to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ and go to the promised land called Zion. I was inspired In the life of Sister Polly Knight. Her family members were very ill when they were asked to leave for Missouri, but she with firm determination expressed that she was not going to die until she arrived in Zion, and so it was. Shortly after arriving in Missouri, she passed away. And now it is her legacy that we have left.

The artist is 12 years old and is in her first year of secondary school. Her hobbies are drawing, watching anime, and sleeping. She is learning some drawing technique and wants to study and live abroad when she is older. Although she does not have any concrete plans, she would really enjoy being a webcomic and manga creator.
