My name is Chanterelle and I am a seventeen year old student who currently attends Bard High School Early College Queens in Long Island City. I like to study film, and have recently finished an independent study with a professor of mine about the films of Kurosawa. More recently I have been studying the manifestation of boredom in the modern era. This is my second year with Youth Insights and I have really been enjoying my time as a teaching assistant with the Contemporary Community program. Teaching art to these kids is not only great because I get to draw maniacs and lunatics with them, but also because it is a humble reminder that this world is so much larger than one thinks it is, and as such, it requires a certain degree of delicate care from each person.
