I am a New Yorker, originally from China. I came to America at the age of three and have been living in Brooklyn ever since. Both my friend and my art teacher recommended that I join Youth Insights. I researched the program and the Whitney and became curious as to what it would be like to participate in the program.
To me, art is creation. It is not an escape, but it is a completely different world, as contradictory as that may sound. One of my favorite artists is Michelangelo. I greatly admire his fresco paintings in the Sistine Chapel. I enjoy music, fashion, writing, drawing, and reading. In a sense, everything inspires me. It is difficult to pinpoint what exactly is inspiring. As long as I deem something interesting, it will most likely be inspiring to me. I would like to develop my writing and drawing skills. I would also like to go to an art school and eventually start my own fashion line.
