Katarina lives in Florida (born in Lincoln, Nebraska) with her family: Dad- Steve; Mom- Tina; and Brother - Patton (Dog- PK and...Turtle- Swimmy!)
Lil’ Pyar asked Katarina (KT) to share a little bit about herself and the story behind this inspiring poem. “I chose to write about a skyscraper because if you’re a skyscraper you are tall and strong and people can’t put you down.” Read more about Katarina’s “give-back” ways and her energetic and positive attitude:
Why did you choose a Skyscraper?
K: A Skyscraper is tall; strong; and no one can put you down.
Where do you find your confidence?
K: My family! As a family we like to “RAK” (Random Acts of Kindness). We buy or make a little gift for someone; then knock on their door, leave the gift and RUN away (and then watch their reactions)! I always try to be a Skyscraper for others. When a new student started in my class, I tried to be nice to her so that she felt good. I wanted to write about Skyscrapers because if you’re a skyscraper your tall, strong. If I was a skyscraper, you would find me in London--so that I could be by Harry Potter!

What message do you want others to gain from reading your poem, “Skyscrapers?”

Tell us, what do you want to be when you grow up?
