Hello! I’m Nahid. I was born in Bangladesh but grew up in Astoria, Queens. My biggest interest and dream is to travel around the world and really get a sense of its diversity. I also enjoy hanging out with friends, listening to music, and watching comedies and action movies.
The best thing about art is that there is no right or wrong; it’s all about your perception. I love drawings, paintings, and animations. Though I have no talent in those areas, I do know how to make henna tattoos, and I create henna designs.
I am interested in Youth Insights because it enables teenagers to explore American art and really helps build communication skills. This program has already improved my communication skills, and has really made me feel comfortable around others.
Working with senior citizens is great and teaches you a lot about history! They have great information about some of the artworks that were made during their time. But nothing is more exciting to me than working with little kids. They are amazing! Their ideas and imaginations soar. Unlike our peers, the younger kids are more engaging and fun to be with.
In three years I see myself in college studying to be a pediatrician and having fun!
