In a New Light: Northwoods Revealed - Mathanial, 15 - "The Protector"
This snake is protecting its babies, making sure other animals don’t get to them. Making sure the young know what to do when they get older so life can go on. When I’m at home I feel like a protector for my siblings. Like it’s my job to show them how to do things in the world.
About Mathanial: I like to play video games and sports. I have struggled in the past to cope with anger. I hope in the future I can handle my anger. It means that I see lots of things I have never seen before. When I’m out taking photographs it feels like I’m in a whole new world. It soothes me and I don’t feel angry.
