Help me identify my ant species :)

Hi I am almost ten years old and I am starting my first ant colony and I captured a queen ant in early July, she was inside my house on the wall. I don’t know what species she is and would love it if someone would help me identify her. I have attached the best picture I could get of her. Thank you!
