I am from Brooklyn, New York. I am Chinese-American, and I’m a junior at Brooklyn Tech High School. I found out about Youth Insights through High 5 Tickets to the Arts and TRaC, their Teen Reviewers and Critics program. With TRaC, I took a tour led by the YI Leaders, and the program intrigued me. I wanted to learn more about different types of art and visit a museum I had never been to before.
I always try to make art a very important part of my life. I don’t really have any favorite artists, but I admire the work of Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, and I have several prints of their artwork. I like reading, ice skating, gymnastics, listening to music, rock climbing, hanging out with my friends, and finding new adventures. A lot inspires me, including other people who do cool and interesting things. I hope to be a good person who has a successful life, and I want to major in something related to art or design.
