Yueer is a passionate and vibrant fifteen-year-old girl who was born in China. At age seven, she moved from China to the United States and has been a resident of Queens, New York ever since. A sophomore at Stuyvesant High School, Yueer also makes time for her passions: volleyball, swimming, and playing instruments including the piano and guitar. Yueer’s role models are feminists and her aunt, whom she feels is extremely patient and supportive. She gets along with interesting weird people.
Yueer’s future plans are to attend Cooper Union’s Institute for Sustainable Design. She loves all types of art especially abstraction, and feels art is a form of expression that does not use words. Yueer hopes to have the opportunity to meet other artists and learn their inspirations with the Youth Insights program.
