The important objects that came in my suitcase when emigrating from Puerto Rico were decorative pictures made by me. I made them with sand, different acrylic color paints, and glue. These pictures are important to me because they remind me of part of my island, as they were typical of historic sites of Puerto Rico and they were made by me. When I look at these pictures, I feel sad because they remind me of the beautiful sites, my roots, and my teacher of handicraft. Remind me of all the island because I loved my island.
