In her childhood, she was judged “You are really bad at drawing”. Then she totally quit drawing anything.
However, she did good job!
Iwasawa Sensei said to her “It has some kind of style”.

At the end of program, took a group photo with Iwasawa Sensei, Mom and Daughter, Ms. Koyanagi. We framed Mom and Daughter’s work, they took it back home!
