Hello! I’m Mina Cho, also a junior at the Cambridge School of Weston. I’ve lived in Arlington, Massachusetts my entire life, and it seems like I’ve always been interested in many different forms of artistic expression. Some of my current interests are photography, music, and jewelry making, but the list could go on and on. I’ve gone through every art phase under the sun, whether that be thinking I was going to be a creative writer, wanting to go to fashion school, and even starting a drawing youtube channel in middle school. (Which I, unfortunately, deleted)
Luckily, I’ve had the opportunity to explore all these avenues growing up, which I recognize is not the case for everyone. My mom is an architect turned artist, so throughout my childhood my house was filled with more art supplies than we could handle. I think this is why I’ve always had so many wildly different interests; because there was always something new to try.
Hopefully, this organization can provide even more people with the same creative freedom, as the crossover between art, social justice, identity, and experiences is one of the most impactful forms of expression.
