School: Bishop Shanahan High School
Background/Interests/Hobbies: The son of Dominican immigrants, Kelvin Nuñez, feels he’s here to tell stories. “I feel like I have a voice that needs to be heard. That’s why I write,” Kelvin said. He does this through his music, poems, short stories, journalism, videos, and photography. Kelvin enjoys listening to music and learning history in his spare time.
Reasons for applying for the workshop: Kelvin greatly enjoyed his experience last year in the workshop as a writer but saw room for improvement. “I felt it was important for me to grow as a capturer of stories through photography, and the workshop allows me to do just that,” Kelvin said.
Looking ahead: Kelvin plans to attend college and to continue telling stories. He wants to be a full-time multimedia artist and he envisions his music and writing opening doors for projects that he hopes can impact the world.
