“Art is my life and it has been a part of me since I was 5 years old,” Daniels told Love What Matters. “For Black History Month I wanted to do something special for my students to inspire them… also while drawing attention to the arts in school. I love what I do and I’m glad that everyone around the world is enjoying it as well.”

“The kids love it. They were in awe when I got finished with it,” she told CBS affiliate, WTOC. “They were like ‘Ms. Daniels, who are they?’ I was like, ‘They are you, or you, they could be anybody.’ It’s something that relates to them and they just love it.”

Her Facebook post showing off the creative display has more than 75,000 shares.
