My name is Anita and I go to LaGuardia High School in Manhattan as an art major. I was born in Manhattan and raised in Brooklyn, where I currently reside. My hobbies are reading, drawing, writing, and working on my website.
I enjoy reading because I learn new and interesting things through the written word. I enjoy writing because it’s a way to express myself. Working on my website teaches me patience and enables me to explore my creative side.
When I first heard of Youth Insights, I was very excited. I was always interested in learning about different types of art and how and why museums choose specfic artwork to be displayed. I think working with younger and older people takes patience, which is a good skill for me to develop. I don’t have a favorite artist; each and every artist is special in his or her unique way. In the future, I plan to go to college, get a degree, a good job, and live comfortably. I have yet to figure out what career I wish to pursue but graphic design and software design seem interesting to me.
