|I like to paint Iran. I like
Iran. Iran has cool writing. It's like magic. The mosque
is a place where people go to pray like a church. I have been to a
mosque in Iran. There is a graveyard next to it. We went there
to pray for my grandfather and Uncle Ali. I would like to live in
The food in Iran is different from ours. My grandmother in
Iran is a good cook. They buy their food from markets. Each
market has different kinds of foods. They don't have grocery stores
like in America.
I want people to say "I love your paintings." I want
them to see how Iran is to me. I think it's an interesting place
because its different and that's where my Dad's family is from."
