Hello, my name is Crystal and I’m eighteen. I go to the Harvey Milk School in Manhattan. I was born in Spanish Harlem, but raised in the Bronx. I am interested in music, life, and fun. I like art because it allows people to express their different viewpoints. I also like the colors used to make paintings and the meanings behind art. I am interested in the Youth Insights program because I want to gain experience in art at a reputable museum. This program gives us exposure to different things: to art, different kinds of people, cultures, all types of stuff. More importantly I enjoy the discussions that are generated when we talk about different artists, their art work, and what was going on in the world when they made the art. I like working with older people due to their maturity and intellect. Younger people are also a pleasure because of their immaturity and fun energy.
