Rebecca is a British and Italian resident of the Upper West Side. She has previously participated in YI Writers and the YI Summer Intensive. She was drawn to this program because it meant meeting and working with other creative, unique teens. Rebecca is not sure yet what career she would like to have, but she has decided to pursue a career path that makes her happy. When asked to deﬁne art, she concluded that art is a form of communication that unites people, and that says things in ways that words can’t. When I asked Rebecca who her favorite artist was, she said that it was Banksy. Although I only got to spend a brief time with Rebecca, I can already tell that she has a strong interest in the arts, and that she has the potential to contribute greatly to the Whitney.
