My love for the ocean and me

Ever since I was a young boy I loved the ocean. Whether swimming, finding marine life in tide pools, creating sand castles, or running around in the mix of sand and salty waters. I have always been very passionate about the marine life and ecosystems in our oceans. Today I’m a huge artist and I love art just as much as I love the ocean. I have been creating art since the time I began to swim (which was when I was very young).

The ocean is a very big inspiration for my art. My favorite marine life animal that I incorporate into my art is the seahorse. For the last ten years I have been volunteering at a multicultural environmental festival called Boston Greenfest. This festival mission is trying to create a more of an environmentally friendly place for the community, the world, and the earth itself. There are a lot of booths set up that educate people on global warming and how to stop it. I have learned so much about the environment since volunteering at this festival.

I wanted to intern with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay because it is a great nonprofit that works with kids, studies the water and incorporate a lot of artistic ideas into its work. Now that I am a senior at Fenway high school I am a very hard worker, I love to learn and to do hands on projects. I am planning to attend Lesley University next fall. I have decided to major in the fine arts program and  am going to do all sort of arts and incorporate all I know about the environment into my work. I cannot wait to work with Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. This is going to be a great spring!
