We, Youth

“Three pages about life in the shelter and overcoming problems”

This is Mercedes Downing’s story. She’s a senior at Santa Fe High School and shares with us her beautiful and inspiring story. As she said, this is the result of three pages written about life in a youth shelter and how she overcame her hardships.

Words

“My piece is merely a collection of poems I wrote. I made them as personal as possible.”

What Ari Rappaport said about his YMP/SFAI Summer Intensive piece is quite the understatement.  While it is a collection of poetry, there is nothing ‘mere’ about them. The philosophies Ari dives into are nothing short of extrodinary- through his poems he creates worlds of wonder about the most fundamental ideas of how to live.

Enjoy the poetic philosophies of Ari Rappaport!

What is Love?

“My piece is about what kind of love there is and what love is, what mistakes I’ve done and how love is hard. It’s me expressing my feeling about what love is and how it hurts. I also wrote a rap”

Edith Juarez, a sophomore at Santa Fe High School, created the piece that she describes above in YMP’s 4th Annual Summer Intensive at the Santa Fe Art Institute.  She dives into the multiple ways people love by beautifully interweaving interviews of people on the Railrunner as well as in Old Town Albuquerque throughout her narrative and speculations on what it means to love. Also, she raps.
