Hello my name is Christy and I’m sixteen years old. I attend Cathedral High School and I’ve lived in New York City all of my life. I’m interested in computers and roller blading. I want to work with computers when I get older. I’m good at it. When I’m roller blading it makes me feel free from all of my worries. I like art because it can have so many different meanings. I like it when people show their emotions through art. I feel that I can learn so much from Youth Insights and from the people in the program. Working with older people will give me a chance to ask them how they see life. I think I’ll like hearing what young people have to say about paintings.
