I shared my niece Natalia’s photo on Instagram & Facebook back in July of this year. I featured her because I wanted to share her natural beauty with the rest of the world. Her inherited genes, both from the Italian side of her family and from the Dominican side of her family, are evident. Still, this type of beauty we are discussing is merely external. Natalia is more than meets the eye. To obtain a better understanding of her achievements and all that she has accomplished at such a young age, and to get a glimpse of her internal beauty, I reached out to her mother. The following is a short but profoundly heart-felt blog post written by Amie Sardella about her beautiful daughter, Natalia.
This bright eyed curly-haired young lady goes by the name of Natalia Diaz. She is a 14 year old vocalist and dancer who actively participates in her community through various acts of volunteer work. She is a member of Paranormix Dance Company and is also on the high school show choir team. Not only is she musically talented, she is also an academic ROCK STAR ! She has managed to maintain straight A's in all honors classes, win spelling bees, & maintain perfect attendance. She was awarded the best in language arts last year at her 8th grade graduation, an honor that only one student receives out of the entire student body. She writes amazing poetry and is truly wise beyond her years. Natalia also plays basketball and works out regularly. She has a contagious laugh and a breathtaking smile. She attends church every Sunday and actively practices her faith which she demonstrates daily through her actions and behavior. If there was one word I could use to describe her I would choose inspirational because that's exactly what she is.
