Hey, my name is Roxanne, but you can call me Roxy—that was the first nickname ever given to me. I’m sixteen, from the Bronx, and I live with my two sisters and my mom. I go to the Bronx High School for the Visual Arts, and I’m a sophomore. My hobbies are: being online, writing poems, reading non-fiction books, playing video games, having time to myself (a lot) and having work to do—yeah, its true, which is why I like going to school, it keeps me busy.
This is my first year in Youth Insights. I expected it to be a lot of giving tours, meeting artists, and learning about different kinds of art. Guess what? That’s what I do. I share the same school as Kendall and James who are also in YI. I joined Youth Insights because I didn’t know much about art, I wanted to learn more, and I wanted to give tours. Before I joined YI, I was participating in another program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, its just like YI, but I attended it during school hours as a club we had. I hope to return next year to YI. We’ll just have to wait and see.
