Isabelle is a tenth-grader living in New York City. She joined Youth Insights because she wanted to learn more about museums and the world of art after doing an after-school program at a local gallery. When she is not reading or writing, Isabelle is playing soccer or basketball. At home, Isabelle embraces her family’s Hispanic roots and speaks Spanish with her parents. Her writing is influenced by her heritage and her experiences of traveling around the world. Last year, she was fortunate enough to visit Thailand and Cambodia. Her travels have inspired her to one day become a journalist for The New York Times.
