I have been a part of the Whitney YI community since last spring semester. I was a part of the Writers program, during which I worked with the artist K8 Hardy. I worked on creating a zine and understanding creativity through an alter ego. Now, as a Leader, I am thoroughly enjoying the immersive work we are doing, especially getting to work personally with experienced artists. I am in my senior year of high school and have lived in New York City my whole life. Art captivates me more than anything, as it confronts, questions, and studies the human condition. I am figuring out what I will be doing in my future—I am unsure what it will be, and I am perfectly happy with that. I don’t know where I will be living next year, who I will know, or what my life style will be like. For now, I am enjoying my last year of high school among friends!
