BFA Student at The School of the Museum of FIne Arts at Tufts University

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, 

   I am a Venezuelan American Jewish girl, with Spanish, Turkish, Moroccan, and Peruvian roots!! It may seem like a joke, but it’s true!! I’m very proud of my diverse heritage. My core is that of an ancient culture, with values which I’m proud to continue, such as love for life and for others, the importance of family, of studying, of respect, and the strive for continuous self-improvement. I also believe that I have within my personality the flavors, the spices and the variety of such different places and cultures. I am an enthusiastic, hardworking, and motivated person. I want to make a difference in my community, and I constantly look for ways to improve it. I am like a bull that sees red, because I always try to accomplish the goals that I set for myself, and always try to persevere and look for ways to grow. Since a very young age, I have used art as a way to express my emotions and show the world my point of view. Art enables me to communicate with people, impact them, and raise awareness for certain causes. Art is everywhere you look; it’s found in everything you own and observe. I believe that nature and human beings are also works of art.
