Story from Kamil Alsanonah

Kamil spoke of his sister as if she is the best person in the world. Always helpful, always supportive, and always giving.  She is a dedicated student with a big heart, dedicating time to fundraising and supporting orphanages. Choosing to draw hands best illustrates an individual, through the details of distinct lines and wrinkles. Hands offer an instant connection with another, an intimate relationship that two share, much like a brother and sister. I represented her brother’s love in this way. He recognizes her willingness to help those who can give nothing back and her undeniably charitable spirit. Though she often dedicated time to others, the story emphasizes the fact that her brother also felt no shortage of love over the years through her many kind words of encouragement.
