Hi! I’m Skye. I live in Queens but my parents are originally from Ireland. I initially came to Youth Insights because my school does not offer art courses and I wanted somewhere where I could explore my creativity. To me, art is anything that explores anyone’s creativity—it can take the form of anything from paintings to literature. Through the Sinister Pop exhibition, I’ve really come to love Andy Warhol and his works, especially his movies. My interests have always been in writing but lately I’m trying to explore other things. I love reading magazines and books and I think those things really inspire me. I’m inspired as well by people who help other people succeed whenever possible, which is why Youth Insights and all the experiences it has given me have been so important to me. In the future, I hope to find out what I’m supposed to do. Hopefully it’s something creative and interesting!
