My name is Wes Ackley and i was born born May 22nd, 1995. I was raised on east long island in a mildly sized town known as Riverhead. At a young age i grew to love skateboarding. Skateboarding has not only allowed me to challenge myself, but also shape and allow me to grow as a unique person. I met many of my close friends through skating and have even been introduced to to other various hobbies.
Currently i am enrolled as a student at CUNY New York City college of technology, majoring in human services. After i attain my bachelors degree i hope to one day study for my masters in either California or Hawaii. Once i have my masters degree i would like to become an art therapist. What is that?- you may ask yourself. Art therapy originates from two fields being art, and psychotherapy. It can focus on the art making process as therapeutic itself or the therapist can use the art to interpret the clients symbolic self expression. So for now, that is my plan in life.
