Sammie is sixteen and the youngest in her family of five. She resides in Brooklyn, in a messy bedroom with newsprint walls, books, and a winning laundry invasion on her bed. She doesn’t have any requirements for her friends, just that they’re on the quiet side (shhh….). Sammie spends her spare time snapping photos, gardening, walking around the city, and watching movies. She’s a big fan of participatory art and Fluxus. Sammie joined Youth Insights to meet artists and discuss art. For her, art is a method of channeling and organizing her thoughts. She believes art can be anything that provokes a reaction. According to Sammie, the best indication that you are living a full life is fatigue at the end of the day.
