Kiara’s Ofrenda

Kiara
born 1995
Remembering Laniyah Jones, 2011
Clay, paint, glitter, flowers, feathers, candles, etc

I dedicate my ofrenda to my cousin Laniyah Jones. I dedicate my ofrenda to her because she was a very kindhearted person who helped people turn their lives around. She was born in Harvey, Illinois in 1995. She was a very honest and responsible teenager. She helped a lot of people we know turn their life around and get off the streets. She was always giving something, but she never liked to receive anything from anyone except for a thank you. She died on June 29th a day after her 16th birthday, which is why I included the crown in my ofrenda. She just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Yo dedico mi ofrenda a mi prima Laniyah Jones. Yo dedico mi ofrenda a ella porque era una persona quien ayudó a otras personas a cambiar y mejorar sus vidas. Ella nació en Harvey, Illinois en 1995. Era una adolescente muy honesta y responsible. Ella ayudó a muchas personas que nosotras conocíamos enderezar sus vidas y dejar las calles. Ella siempre daba a otras, pero nunca le gustaba recibir nada excepto las gracias. Falleció el 29 de junio, un dia después de su cumpleaños 16. Por eso incluyó la corona en mi ofrenda. Ella estaba en un mal lugar eh uh mal momento.
