Christian

Hi, my name is Christian. I am Dominican, and I was born and raised in Washington Heights. I would describe my neighborhood as a clash between “the hood” and cultural pride. I first became interested in Youth Insights when they came to visit while I was participating in the Expanding the Walls program at the Studio Museum in Harlem. I decided to apply after I read about the Writers program and was intrigued by what it had to offer. A few of my interests are photography, playing the piano, and skateboarding. The idea that learning is a form of freedom greatly influences me because I can agree with it one hundred percent. I don’t have specific goals in life, but I know I would love to continue learning.

For their final project, YI Writers worked with artist in residence Cameron Crawford to create short scripts and videos that used works of art as characters conversing in a film or that outlined what their ideal museum would be.
