Bertin is a tenth-grader and has a Haitian and Native American background. He is a creative writer. To Bertin, art is something you can draw or something that is so complex it is difficult to describe. He does not have only one favorite artist. His inspirations, which fuel his writing, include paintings, words, and his mother and grandmother. Besides creative writing, Bertin likes acting, singing, dancing, swimming, reading, and playing basketball. In the future, he hopes to be a successful writer, actor, and director, and to work with technology. Bertin’s dream is to write a book this year.
