I am a Brooklyn-raised Bard High School student. After seeing a Kara Walker show at the Whitney when I was ten, I knew it was my favorite museum. My love of the Whitney, and my passion for being around art in general, brought me to Youth Insights. I feel completely unqualified to define art. The only time I know I’ve made art is when I’ve created something I cannot categorize—when I have no idea which file in my brain I’m supposed to put it in. When it comes to visual art, I would consider myself a more established photographer than anything else. Still, I can’t help but do things I’m not great at—painting, drawing, you name it.
