True to our heart’s desire


Its been awhile since I drew and painted a picture,so here it is! Her name is Amu Hinamori from the anime series called Shugo Chara. She is the protagonist of the series and is one of my favourite anime character of all time. She is extremely shy and kind-hearted but shows off a different outside character that is totally different from her real self, people see her as tough and they describe her as “Cool and Spicy.” One night, she wished to be someone that is true to herself and she gave birth to three guardian eggs. These eggs are her would-be self, her potential talent/skills and character. The one I painted is Amu with her guardian character Ran.

I can relate to Amu because I have experience in having to show a different character other than myself because of the peer pressures of my classmates and friends. I felt like I needed to be somebody else to fit in and be one of the “cool kids.” Throughout my life, I have realized that if people cannot accept me as I am, as my true self, then it is better to have a few friends than to have many fake ones. Its a reality that I have understood clearly when I was in high school. To be true to oneself is tough to do but if we just stay true to our heart’s desire then it is not impossible.
