On July 18, 2019 I became an American Citizen, yeah! This piece reflects my life through the countries I have been longer. I was born in Stockholm, Sweden, you can see the flag and the red houses. We emigrated when I was a little over a year, to Venezuela, beautiful tropical country, where I grew up , got married and had my kids, here you see the flag and the beach. Life changed and I had to come to the USA, I have lived here over 11 years, the flag and the Statute of Liberty with the city silouette ,and finally I got my Citizenship, very happy for that! Thank you America!

This a memory that I have of my parents, Mormor and Morfar, when we went to the beach, every weekend, to the coast in Venezuela. They were so happy there! I decided to make a tribute to them, I think it came out well, I am very happy with it!
