Hey, my name is Emily. I’m sixteen years old and I attend Cathedral High School. I was born and raised in Manhattan. I am interested in art (painting/drawing) because I can use it to get across how I’m feeling. I am also interested in social work because I would like to deal with teens and help them when I’m older. In art I love how the artists use their views on the world or whatever artwork they’re doing so that I can see how they felt at the time. I am interested in Youth Insights because I will benefit from knowing how to communicate and compromise with people. And it will be a meaningful experience that will help me in the future. I think that I will like working with older people because since they’ve been around longer they will usually relate to the art in a different way than we teenagers will. I think I’ll like working with younger people because they are vibrant and full of energy when sharing their perspectives.
