Hi, I’m Joomi. I’m seventeen years old and I am a student at Benjamin Cardoza High School. I’ve lived in New York City all of my life. I’m really interested in Biology because living things fascinate me. In the future, I would like to be a surgical veterinarian or a research scientist. I also like art because I can create images that exist nowhere else in the universe and because I can make people feel different emotions through my artwork. I became interested in Youth Insights as a way for me to meet people, experience talking in front of people, overcome my shyness and learn more about contemporary American art. I think working with older people will be interesting because they have more experience and wisdom, they see the world differently from me, and they can give me a different perspective on life. On the other hand, I think working with younger people will teach me patience.
