The Start

Hello everyone, so glad you decided to take some time to read this blog post. To kick things off my name is Jonatan Sanabria. I was born in Brewster, Washington, to a family that came from Michoacán, Mexico. At the young age of two, my family moved me and my brother to Colorado were we spent our entire lives. My family currently consists of me, my brother, and my mother, as well as a cat I adopted. They are some of the most supportive people for me. They might not say it in words, but their actions speak way louder. So I gained that same kind of hard work attitude from them.

A Learning Experience

Hello once again, everyone. This time I am back with a story of a learning experience I had here. To start off, the biggest learning experience I had was when I got to meet the Mexican Consulate of Louisiana and some of the artists that came for the presentation. It was a learning experience because I have never seen that side of my culture, as most of my family is from a poorer region of Mexico. So seeing these people who made it to their positions was really something I didn’t think I would do. Of course the Consulate also invited special guests that came from other parts of Latin America, so I got to see new perspectives as well. The artists also talked about why they made their art and what it represents. One of them was about a man being carried out after suffering a burn, and the way the artist used the red to show people faces glowing from the embers was outstanding as it looked a bit menacing and evil, yet the reality is they are seeking help.

Jonatan Sanabria 

I was born in Brewster, Washington, to a family that came from Michoacán, Mexico. At the young age of two, my family moved me and my brother to Colorado were we’ve spent our entire lives. My family currently consists of me, my brother, and my mother, as well as a cat I adopted. They are some of the most supportive people for me. They might not say it in words, but their actions speak way louder. So I gained that same kind of hard work attitude from them. I’m in college for my major in music. Music is my everything; it has changed me so much and for the better. I now dedicate myself to music and want to go on to create my own music for movies, games and TV shows. Of course, the music genres I listen to include everything, so I don’t really dislike any music. Being able to play on the piano is the best thing in the world, because no words are needed to express what it is I’m trying to portray when I play my music.
