I was born and raised in the Bronx. Both of my parents are originally from the Dominican Republic. I decided to apply for Youth Insights because my photography teacher recommended it to me as a writing extracurricular. Art has always influenced life. It’s one of the best ways to express yourself and who you are. I don’t have any favorite artists in particular. Going to an art school, I learn how to appreciate every artist’s point of view.

I love reading and writing. Many of the things I read inspire what I write. Some of my biggest inspirations are the Bible, mystery novels, and romance novels. I also love drawing. My favorite thing to do is make personalized cards for my friends and family. In the future, I hope to become a successful writer, be a role model to others, and make a difference in people’s lives.
