My name is Cesar and I go to the High School for Health Professions and Human Services. I’m currently part of the YI Leaders program but I’ve been at the Whitney since October 2008. I have participated in the Contemporary Community, Artist in Residence, Summer Intensive, and YI Leaders programs. Thanks to the Museum, I have learned so much and I know that my skills as a student, artist, presenter, leader, and learner have progressed.
I am eighteen years old and I’m one of those people who love to be busy. If I were to describe myself with four adjectives they would be: determined, optimistic, confident, and humble. Aside from the Whitney, I am part of the Opportunity Network, an organization that prepares high-achieving high school students for the future through building life-long networks and connections. If it weren’t for the Whitney, I would never have gotten into OppNet, and I love both programs so much.
I also love drawing, playing soccer, food (I eat anything), dancing, reading, writing, museums, art, architecture, and nature. I have a lot of passions and interests which I strive to maintain and incorporate into reaching my goals. Next year I will be off to Connecticut College to major in architectural studies and minor in environmental studies. I have two goals that I want to reach: to become a green architect and to open my own restaurant. Once I achieve those, I will think of more goals to strive toward. Finally, I have one simple way of thinking about the things that I do and setting myself to accomplish them. What the mind can believe and conceive, the mind can achieve. And that’s pretty much what I’m about.
