“This summer at the Y, I supervise children as a camp counselor and help run the Art Camp. I like being outside and working with others my age. I also like giving kids the space to be creative and be themselves. I think I make a positive impact on those around me by fostering creativity and promoting kindness toward others. Since the Y did the same for me as a child, I hope to be able to give that back. Working at the Art Camp and drawing for the campers has made me realize how being exposed to creativity as a child helped turn me into the artist I am today. I love being able to show kids art that may inspire them in the future.”
