Israel Ozonwanji is a grade 12 student from St. Patrick's High School who loves using his artistic talents to bring joy and happiness to others. He's accumulated over 50 community service hours drawing portraits of St. Patrick's Retirement Home residents. Israel has already completed three portraits and hopes to do as many as he can before he graduates.

"It has been a very rewarding experience for me," he says. "While working on these drawings, I have had the opportunity to interact with some of the seniors as they casually walk by and ask me questions about my work." The home has even asked Israel to showcase his drawings of the residents along with some of his own artwork at their upcoming gallery night.

Israel, one of many talented artists at St. Patrick's High School, is a great example of someone who lives out the Catholic Graduate Expectations. Well done, Israel!
