Alesanicole is sixteen years old and attends Arts and Media Prep in Brooklyn, New York. One of her funny quirks is that she does not enjoy the arts or media all that much, at least compared to her fondness for math and English. Alesanicole loves to read and write and she can do so for hours on end. She is also very skilled at math, and her skills in both math and English have contributed to her aspiration to become a psychiatrist. Alesanicole’s interest in the YI Writers program stemmed from her love of writing and reading, as well as her desire to visit an art museum for the first time. Alesanicole is deeply inspired by the books she reads and by the hope she sees in the world. She looks forward, with open eyes and a warm embrace, to whatever the future may hold for her.
