Narrative

Maya: These trees would bloom those white flowers all around my neighborhood every time spring was near. It gave me motivation to finish the school year strong because it was hinting that summer was near. I love seeing these trees on campus because it reminds me of how excited I was to see them bloom when I was a kid. It's kind of silly to think about it now that they meant so much to me when I was little, but it's all about the simple things in life :)

Rachel: This tree is important to me because it reminds me of my childhood. We had about three or four of these trees in our yard when I was growing up and I loved to sit underneath them and look at the white blooms.
