I am Daisy. I was born in Texas but have been raised in New York City all my life. I am from Brooklyn and I have a Mexican background. Growing up I moved a lot, all over the city, so I focused on writing and looking at art. I used to just write whatever came to mind, whether it was fictional or just my thoughts. To me art means having the ability to express oneself, and whenever I look at artwork I always try to uncover what the artist was thinking. Joining Youth Insights, I hope to gain experience in the arts and have a better understanding of art. One of my favorite artists is Jean-Michel Basquiat, because I believe he is an example of someone who truly expressed themselves in their artwork.
