Hey, I’m Joel. I’m seventeen years old and I attend Washington Irving High School in Manhattan. I was born and raised in the Bronx. My primary interests are dance, drama, and acting. Art is an outlet for emotion and it makes you think about things you would normally pass by on the street. I enjoy museums because they are all very different. The Museum of Natural History has interesting things like cave people and animals. A museum like the Whitney shows things like oil paintings, cartoons, and sculptures that tell how people from the 1930s dressed and felt. I think I will enjoy working with older people due to the different personalities and with young people as a reminder of my childhood. I’ve found that little kids have a world of their own that adults can often learn a lesson from—you’d be surprised!
