Coming from Haiti three years ago, Christie Guerbenjy Laurent is a student at LaGuardia Community College pursuing an associates degree, majoring in Civil Engineering. She is passionate about drawing, collages, and creative projects. She was a member of an art group in Haiti, where they create pots out of clay and draw, among other creative projects. She uses art and drawing to express most of her feelings; she states “art is one of my ways to communicate.” Any bad social or gender aspects in a society, she addresses them through art. She is planning on attending City College in pursuit of her bachelor’s degree in Civil engineering. Follow her on Instagram @kitty_benjy.
