“So we had these pictures on here that gave us ideas and showed a picture of a carrot cake. And I’m like why not do a carrot cake? So I was like yeah I’ll do a carrot cake. And it took me about two art classes to do it,” says Allisha Rivera student at Linder Elementary School. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
