My name is Stephanie, and I go to high school in Manhattan. I live in Rego Park, Queens, where I was born. My ethnic background is Colombian.
I love to draw because it’s something that I can do when I’m happy or sad. I also love to sing with my dad; it’s a way in which we bond. One of the things I love about art is color. Color is the thing that really makes a picture.
I like Youth Insights because it helps me to interact with different age groups. I think that it is cool to work with older people. Like my grandparents, they make me laugh a lot. I also think it is cool to work with younger people because we can share ideas.
My favorite American artist is Joseph Stella, especially his painting The Brooklyn Bridge: Variation on an Old Theme. Three years from now, I hope to have my master’s degree in interior design.
