Hi, my name is Yara. I’m sixteen years old and I go to Clinton High School in the Bronx. I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. I’m interested in music and sports as an energy release. I think art is a reflection of people, life, and reality. I’m interested in Youth Insights as a way to learn and teach about art and life. It is also an opportunity to meet new people and learn about different lifestyles and how they influence the way we see things. I believe I will enjoy working with adults because it will teach me how to be one. I am looking forward to working with younger people as well because of their imaginations. Because they haven’t lived life, they have a different way of looking at the world—I find that fascinating.
