My name is Lucie, and I am a junior at PPAS (Professional Performing Arts School). I am a dancer. I initially found out about the Youth Insights program from my mom, who in turn had found it via the internet.
I have always loved art. For me, it is a way of channeling my creativity, as well as a way to keep me relaxed. I love to write, and whenever I think of a character, I always draw them, in the hope of truly seeing the person I have created. My favorite artist is Edgar Degas, because of his sculpture The Little Dancer. Since I dance, I have a personal connection with this work. In the future, I hope to find a way to help people, whether it be through art, dance, or nursing.
