Reyna’s Carmen

Video posted April 18, 2013 in News by Kimberly Valarezo and Chanukah Christie

This story is about a little girl named Reyna. She sings and acts and dances, she basically has a free spirit and is very vibrant. She’s eleven years old and already shows signs of being something great. Her mother believes her purpose on earth was to raise Reyna. For this story I would focus on Reyna involvement in music, such as her lead roll in her school’s play named Carmen. Her involvement in her school’s orchestra and band, and just her as a child that loves music and likes to do all of these things above.
