Most people are attracted to the Met for the art, but what happens behind the scenes captivates me far more. Not many people are given the opportunity to see the way the Museum works behind closed doors, but I was lucky enough to get that chance, and I now have a deeper love for the Museum and all of the work that goes into making it one of the best.

From New Yorkers to tourists, thousands of people visit The Metropolitan Museum of Art every day. I have admired these people from afar for a while and believe they are a part of the art. With people drawing, viewing, and talking about the artworks, there is so much diversity in one place. I sometimes find myself overwhelmed by the chaos of my studies, family, friends, and everything else I have going on, but I never thought that there might be other people who feel the same way and also find a safe haven within the Met.

I have been interested in everything and anything that has even the slightest relation to ancient Egyptian culture since the seventh grade. My keen interest in the ancient Egyptians ranges from their polytheistic beliefs, to their political system, to their long line of pharaohs.

I find one-minute gesture, or figure, drawings very challenging. My desire to create an intriguing composition makes capturing the model's gesture in such a short period of time even harder. Normally, I look to the Met's collection for inspiration when I find myself confronted by an artistic problem, but, in this case, I thought: "How many one-minute gesture drawings are actually on display in a museum full of meticulously constructed masterpieces?"
