WNYC Transmitter Park is a staple afternoon park for many, located at the bank of the East River. When observing the park and Greenpoint overall, I realize just how much it’s changed.
Victoria Siębor was born and raised in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Though she loves the city’s glass and concrete buildings, she’s constantly drawn to the hum of the leaves and anything related to trees, mountains and lakes. Victoria has an avid love of learning Latin, doing social science research and reading literature. She enjoys all forms of dancing, especially jazz and contemporary. She hopes to publish short stories exploring her upbringing as a child of Polish immigrants.
This year, I really learned to capture my voice and understand how imagery fuels my writing. A lot of my writing is inspired by nature and nostalgia, often incorporating parks or weather descriptions to describe my emotions or childhood.
When asked to write my full name, I am always tempted to include the “ę” in Siębor.
Even within a crowd, one can discover wings.
