    Gabriela Mejia is an artist using her creative talents to decorate colorful guitars for Veterans. Mejia grew up in Colorado hearing stories about her grandfather, who served during WWII. These stories, passed down through the generations, instilled a deep respect for Veterans and their service, as well as a deep sense of patriotism. As a young woman, Mejia adored nature and culture. Skilled in dance, she earned a spot on the Barefoot Hawaiians, a dance group that often volunteered to perform in Veteran homes across the country. Many of these Veterans served at Pearl Harbor and relished the opportunity to watch Mejia and her Polynesian dance group, which brought back happy memories of younger days.
