Alithia also captions the artwork. The 10-year-old stated, “I want people to be delighted; when they see my interest in painting. I want the world to see my work and show the world what I can achieve.”

Matthew McConaughey, an actor and native of Uvalde, mentioned Alithia’s skills in a June speech; on Capitol Hill in support of gun legislation. He displayed the girl’s self-portrait; as he was standing at the platform. In heaven, looking down on her; it depicts Alithia sketching with her buddy.
