My name is Genesis. I am a senior student at Bronx High School for the Visual Arts. I am eighteen years old and I am an art fanatic. Some important things to know about me is that I’m witty, silly, brutally honest and very moody at times. I suck at physics and I have a thing for math, so you can say that I’m genuinely a nerd at heart. I was born eighteen years ago in La Vega, Dominican Republic, where I resided in until I was about four. Things were a lot different there then they are here. We lived in a small shack-like house where chickens roamed around freely, cows would be moved now and then and men/women would walk by carrying goods on bowls over their heads. It was a bit hard adjusting to all the luxuries that come from living in New York and that’s why I personally am not too fond of materialism.
In school, I will be completely honest, when I am not doing my work, I am usually talking to friends and having a good time. I usually draw in little corners of my notebook when class gets too excruciatingly boring. As an extra curricular, I usually go straight to my summer job’s working place at 165th Avenue in the Bronx, and have fun with the kids that stay for afterschool. I get a chance to hang out with fun kids, be a councilor, and occasionally jump in the pool with them. I like to think that I’m pretty good at art and math at school. I naturally love art so it has always been an easy pass for me. I love math because of how surprisingly challenging and beneficial it can be in everyday life.
On the long run, I plan to be an illustrator and /or maybe an animator as a career, so once I’ve set out my goals, I work really hard to reach them. I’m not loud and obnoxious, or hungry for attention because I personally believe that attention is something you earn rather then expect. I am an old lady at heart and love to be original. In my spare time, I work on my own personal web-comic and actually have benefitted greatly from both as an artist and financially here and there ha ha. I developed this mentality after having a long time to really just sit down and properly assess where my life was going. I came to the conclusion that being irresponsible and immature about even going to class was ultimately screwing me over. I was only hurting myself when I procrastinated. Good things come from hard work and determination.
