Chandra Rice draws while sitting on the track and listening to music outside. According to her column, light matters to this photographer. "When an artist sees the sun set, we see all the colors, how the sun looks as its setting," Rice said.

Walking through the halls of Groom High School, I remember all the times that I’ve been here. I’ve passed through these classrooms since fifth grade. Now, I’m a freshman. I take pictures for journalism, play sports, and  involve myself in as many extra-curricular activities as I can. Oh, and I love my family – and my art.

Here are a few family details readers may not know about me. I have several siblings, including three brothers: Jessie Rice, Michael Caleb Williams and Christopher Hernandez. I also have four sisters: Kirsten Rice, Stacey Hernandez, Jackie Hernandez, and Contessa Travanthan. I’m an aunt to four boys and two girls.

In my free time I love hanging out with my family and drawing. We sit in the living-room and watch movies. Kirsten and I will take our nephews outside to play basketball. Sometimes, we stay out there for awhile. On Sundays we always have a big brunch or dinner. Those rituals are just a few family activities that we’ve always done.

While I draw, I enjoy listening to music. There’s just something about listening to music that gives me inspiration. That’s something that every artist needs. We view the world in a different perspective than others do. We see situations in different ways.

For example, when the sun sets everyone sees something beautiful. When an artist sees the sun set, we see all the colors, how the sun looks as its setting. Everything in view is what we see.
