The Caravan

Freddie Gist
Freddie Gist is a 17-year-old who lives in Chicago, Illinois. During high school, Freddie attended University of Chicago Laboratory Schools and then transferred to Mount Carmel at the start of his sophomore year.

At Mount Carmel, Freddie is part of the tennis team and choir. His goals are to create a good portfolio and attend Savannah College of Art and Design to major in architecture and a minor in graphic design. Freddie's love of art started at the start of freshmen year when he found out about spray paint art and how spray paint could be used constructively instead of being used for tagging things and marking things like how he has seen across the city. Since then, Freddie has looked into and tried more forms of art like sculpture, photography, animation, digital art and now writing.

Freddie grew up on the South Side of Chicago and attended Mary E Mc Dowell for grades kindergarten through fourth and attended KIPP Bloom Primary School for fifth through eighth.

In his free time, Freddie enjoys drawing, painting, playing video games and spending time with friends and family.
