In Our Display Case

children's display: tubular turtles

Georgina Sanchez is in 8th grade at the Highland Park Middle School. She has been collecting turtles since she was 5 years old. Georgina likes slow animals. In fact she feels one with the turtle and thinks of it as her spirit animal.

Many of the turtles in her collection are gifts or souvenirs she bought while on vacation. A few are turtles she made on her own. Her favorite turtles include a trio constructed of shells that she bought in Ocean Beach, NJ. The trio represents her mom, sister and Georgina. The tiniest turtle in her collection was her first. Georgina thinks turtles are adorable and she continues to add to her collection.
