Hi my name is Octavia and I am seventeen. I attend Gotham Professional Arts Academy and I am in the 11th grade. In school I am studying art history because I love learning all about art. I like to explore and I am most interested in photography. In my own time, I look for colleges I would like to attend after high school because I am a straight A and B student and I never miss assignments or projects.
After school I work at the Whitney, where I have been for almost a year now. I have been a part of the Youth Insights Artist Program, the Youth Insights Summer Intensive Program, and now, the Youth Insights Leadership Program. Being at the Whitney is a great opportunity for me and all of the other students to learn from artists and the art at the Whitney. I have fun meeting and collaborating with the artists I have met, and also going into the galleries to think about and discuss artwork. Being here at the Whitney is a dream come true. I meet different people almost every day and I always learn something new.
