Hey, my name is Nelson. I am from Spanish Harlem. I am Puerto Rican. I attend the High School of Art and Design. My interests are drawing, reading comics, Japanese animation, and playing sports. To me, art is anything that a person thinks of and brings to life for people to see.
My main interest is animation, especially Japanese animation because of the art and technique. One Japanese animation I like is Dragon Ball Z, because to me, I think it’s the best action series that was ever made.
I enjoy Youth Insights because of the people and my fascination with art. It’s cool to work with all age groups because I learn, and gain knowledge and wisdom from working with them. The people in Youth Insights are the greatest people you will ever meet.
In the future I really hope to be a cartoonist or a comic artist.
