Hi, my name is Jasmin and I live in the Bronx, where I was also born and raised. I’m Puerto Rican, though I consider myself a New Yorker.
I’m interested in writing, reading, and meeting new people. I am also interested in drama and performing on stage. I am currently the editor of my school newspaper, which helps me experience the world of journalism and editing.
Youth Insights is an excellent program to be a part of because I feel it helps me develop my communication skills and interact better with people. I always look forward to meeting new people and enriching my knowledge of American art. I am interested in art because it is so expressive and unique to each artist. It is a way for artists to express themselves creatively without using words.
I think that working with senior citizens, as well as with children, teaches me a lot, not only about myself, but also about those around me. I respect senior citizens and learn from them, just as they learn from me. The best part about being with children, is that they always make things more interesting and fun.
