Jasmin Amador | Rancho Art Resident
My name is Jasmin Amador and I am 22 years old. I have Congenital Muscular Dystrophy, but have always loved anything that has to do with art. I started taking art classes in high school. Then one summer I was invited to take an art class at Rancho with the pediatric group. That summer was a great summer, as I met incredible teachers with disabilities who taught us how to paint and how to express ourselves through paint. It was the summer that changed my life. Rancho made me one of their Resident Artists and now I get to paint and display my art work each year at the Art of Rancho Show.
My passion for art started to blossom with the help of Rancho los Amigos, as they taught me that persons with disabilities also have a chance to do anything they want. I thank God for putting Rancho and their lovely staff into my life. I’m currently at Citrus College pursuing my art degree. From there I would like to go on to an art institute.
