Idalis is a junior at the High School of Art and Design. She is sixteen years old and lives in Briarwood, Queens. She enjoys making films and watching movies on Netflix, especially independent films and romances. After high school, Idalis plans to attend college, preferably away from the city since she wants to experience something new. Idalis loves art for its ideas and forms of expression. One of her favorite artists is Andy Warhol. Idalis believes the purpose of art is to inspire, create controversy, and provoke discussion. She loves spending time at home, and likes to drink tea in her pink, black, and white bedroom. She looks up to her parents because they are hard workers. Besides English, she can speak Spanish, knows Latin, and is teaching herself French. She is really excited to be a part of this program!
