    Let me set the scene, I wake up earlier than I should during summer break and get on the train from Queens to Brooklyn. As I walk through the Brooklyn streets I felt the most out of place that I have ever felt. At first, when walking out of the subway station everything seemed like a normal day. I stood outside the Marcy Projects (a cheaper housing choice in NYC), where I found myself looking at familiar faces of Hispanic, African-American people and the occasional Caucasian tourist walking…

    Growing up in Queens, I have always been inspired and enthralled by the layers of individuality that every New Yorker wears so well. Performing on stages where actors of all ages gave me advice not only on acting (I participated in City Light’s education programs), but also on life itself. I spent my weekends taking art classes in the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and meeting other kids my age who loved art.
