My name is Vita. I am a senior in high school and I'm from lower Manhattan. My mother is Irish; my dad was born in California and grew up in Italy. I was drawn to Youth Insights the moment I saw a link for the application on the Whitney’s website. It seemed like a great opportunity to learn about new types of art and work with other young writers.
My interests lie in art and how it connects with and is a wider part of culture. Art enables me to express my emotions. When I create something I feel relaxed and peaceful, and when I write about someone else’s art, I feel excited.
My favorite artists are Edvard Munch, David Hockney, Edgar Degas, Vincent Van Gogh, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Charles Burchfield. Just as I admire a variety of artists, I am inspired by a variety of different museums, people, books, and films. I hope to work in a museum when I am older. That way, I will be surrounded by what I love and people who share my interests.
