Hello, my name is Rafael. I am sixteen years old. I was born in the Dominican Republic. I came to New York when I was four years old, and I presently reside in the Bronx.
I am very interested in computer graphics and comic book illustration. I like computer graphics because it allows me to create works of art of any kind. I enjoy combining computer graphics with comic book illustration. I am beginning to explore animation, 3-D programs, and web design.
I am a second year Youth Insights participant. I have so much fun, and it is such an exciting program, that I had to return. As I further enhance my tour-giving skills, I am also helping first year Youth Insights participants develop their skills and tours.
I like working with older people because it gives me a chance to learn more about what life was like at another time or even at the beginning of this century. Older people also have a lot of experience with many different things and their advice sometimes helps me through a problem.
I like working with younger people because it lets me remember what it was like to be a kid and how much I have changed.
