Remember, a true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.
Natalie Tinti is a student in the fourth grade at the Vintage Hills Elementary School in Southern California. With her passion and talent of illustrating, she has won many awards for her excellence. Back in 2004, as a five-year-old, Natalie won first place for the poster contest at the 4th Annual Artists Event hosted by Great Graphics Bella & Animal Friends of the Valleys. That same year, she achieved first place for the Visual Arts Primary Division at her school for the Reflections theme “A Different Kind of Hero.” In 2007, her art piece was placed in the Promenade Mall at the Youth Art Exhibition hosted by the Temecula Valley Art Council. Recently, Natalie's book, Sewing a Friendship, was awarded a Silver Medal in the 2009 award contest hosted by the nationally recognized Readers Favorite Book Reviews under the Children-Chapter category. In addition, Miss Tinti received a certificate of achievement and was recognized as an honor student at her elementary school.
Currently, Natalie is helping to promote the theme “Kindness is Cool” at her elementary school. This includes assisting others by writing gratitude letters to students in response to their kindness. Through these efforts Natalie stresses the importance of friendships and how students should persevere in being nice to everyone.
