My name is Michael. I’m a sophomore at the Bronx Center for Science and Mathematics. I was born and raised in the Bronx, although my parents are West Indian, from a country called Guyana. Just like other kids my age, I am searching for who I am, and forever changing due to the influences around me. I am not the same as I was yesterday. And I will not be the same tomorrow. I feel like I find myself through artistic expression. Besides art, I enjoy coconuts, horror movies, and staying up past my bedtime.
Music is my life. It is one of my favorite forms of art. I am very interested in all genres of music because they each help capture the emotions I feel at a certain time. Although I really love art, I also have other things in my life that interest me. Science is one of my favorite classes in school. I like learning about the human body. In the future I would like to be a radiologist. I am greatly influenced by my cousin Veekah, who tells me all about her medical career. I find skeletal structures to be an amazing natural form of art.
