My name is Temitope. I am sixteen and I attend Humanities Preparatory Academy High School. My background is Nigerian and American. My hobbies are sketching fashion designs, watching television, and swimming. I like fashion art which is also in painting. Fashion designer Angela Simmons inspires me because she has her own fashion line and she is a philanthropist. Art is an expression of creativity in a visual form. I know I am happy when I have a creative idea and I start sketching it out. In the future I hope to become a fashion entrepreneur and a philanthropist. I like helping kids in need.
