My name is Johaely. I was born here in New York. As the son of Dominicans, I have spent most of my life in the sunny Caribbean nation of the Dominican Republic. As a kid I was very sickly, something which almost cost me my life when I was three. But then I got much healthier and moved back to New York. Personality-wise, I’m somewhat shy and don’t feel very comfortable talking about myself for fear of becoming annoying. Because of how unsafe the Dominican Republic has become during the last few years, I also have an almost ingrained distrust of strangers. But I still try to be the nicest I can.
What got me interested in the Youth Insights program was the appeal of an internship, and meeting different artists and writers. I wanted to expand my own limits and knowledge. My art is somewhat limited in technique and medium, but I hope I can improve and transcend genres.
