Pencil drawing of a woman in a Civil War Era dress.

Hello. My name is Adalia Knakieiwcz. I live in Morocco, Indiana. I am a home schooled student and in the seventh grade. My favorite subjects are history and reading.

I like to read, do 4-H, and write. I raise show chickens and rabbits for 4-H. I also enjoy fishing, hunting, hiking, and of course drawing!

I want to either go into law enforcement, the military, to be a pilot, or to work for NASA. I like to fly and travel. One of my favorite things to do is horseback riding or walking with my dog Dixie. I hope to train her to become a therapy dog.

I love looking into history and reading up on the Civil War. I love old classic books, especially Jane Austin. Some of my favorite books are Treasure Island, Phantom of the Opera, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Lord of the Rings.

I started drawing cartoons when I was three. I took art classes at the Rensselaer Library with Ms. Metz for a couple of years. My favorite tool to draw with is graphite pencil. I like drawing mythical creatures and old historical figures. I like listening to classical music while I draw.
