I was born in Manhattan to Dominican parents. I grew up watching my family struggle to give my siblings and I a step toward a brighter future.
At a young age, I knew I was an artist and I began drawing whatever I saw, but once I hit the 6th grade, I explored more fields in the arts. And I fell in love with dance.
Dance has been my passion ever since I started six years ago. I have been working hard at this passion and I feel it belongs in my future. As I begin my last year in high school, I’ve decided that it is something I would like to pursue as a career. As a dreamer, there’s no giving up for me.
My Film: DREAM DRIVEN
“As a dreamer, there’s no giving up for me.”Aleek - Reel Lives
My film, Dream Driven, depicts the struggles and successes of a dreamer. Specifically viewed through the eyes of a dancer and a baseball player, who share with the rest of the world the pursuit of their passions. Quitting is not an option.
