I never thought I'd ever really end up in art school.
Even after I applied for LaGuardia High School, I knew
I might get in. But I never really considered the entire
fact that I could be making art a part of my everyday
life. During the application for LaGuardia High School
we had to audition. We were asked to draw random objects
and random scenes. I remember the only person who ever
really wished me luck besides my parents was my best
friend at the time. I did not know it then but we would
the most memorable three years of our lives. Later on
he'd just become my inspiration and my person to go
to when I had problems for life and what to do with
my art. Always pushing me to be and do better. The art
I made was for us to enjoy together.
We don't talk anymore, my best friend and I. But I
won't forget the courage that person gave me. The courage
to be myself and express myself through my work.
I hope we both win in life and maybe in another life
we can be friends again.
