My name is Khadijah. I am fifteen years old. I was born in New York. Some interests I have are sports, art, and movies. During my spare time I love to draw and write poetry. My family is made up of different backgrounds and religions, but I am one of Jehovah’s witnesses. Because of my family’s diversity, I am exposed to a lot of things.
My teacher told me about this program because she knows how much I love museums and meeting new people. She told me that it was a wonderful program and that I should apply for it. Next thing I knew, I was called for an interview and got in!
Art does not just have one meaning or point of view. Everyone sees things differently. This helps me in opening up my mind to different points of view.
