Hi, my name is Sarah, and I’m seventeen years old. I’m a student at Hunter College High School. I was born in Manhattan but I’ve spent most of my life in Queens. I enjoy painting and writing because they’re the most accessible forms of expression and they’re fun. I like how you can look at a painting, or listen to music or read a story and be completely enveloped in it, feeling the joy and pain the artists put into it. I’m interested in Youth Insights because the program brings together a diverse group of teenagers and teaches us through hands-on experience about art and life. I think I’ll like working with older people because they have lots of experiences to share and (hopefully) will welcome us to their scene. In contrast, little people are fun, exuberant, and exciting, and similar to older people. I also like the fact that little people are often willing to share their time.
