Once upon a time there was a girl named Gloria. She always wanted to be an artist and also had the talent for it too. There was one problem though, she did not want anyone to see her beautiful work.
Gloria was scared that people would not like her work and they would make fun of it. Her parents tried and tried to tell her that whoever did not like her pictures was blind. She was still afraid to share her art work.
At school when Gloria was lining up for lunch, a girl grabbed her notebook and saw all of Gloria's pictures. When the girl was all done admiring the pictures, she handed the notebook to the teacher.
The teacher was amazed by Gloria's work. She went up to Gloria and told her she was a young artist and gave her art book back to her. Gloria's Teacher offered her a professional job as an artist. Gloria said "No", "Well why not?" the teacher asked. "I am afraid that people will make fun of my pictures" stated Gloria. "You will still have great pictures and it doesn't matter if others don't like them, you will be a great artist". Gloria looked at her teacher with a big smile and said "Thanks Mrs. Sunshine, that helped me a lot and what about that job again?"
