My interest in photography was first sparked by a book given to me by my mother called “Our Beautiful Children”. As I sat down and turned over the hard cover not knowing what to expect, I was immediately transfixed by the eyes of each child; eyes of wonder, eyes of excitement, eyes that had not yet lived a life of order, eyes that spoke freedom, and in that moment I understood what it was to be a child. Pure unspoiled smiles beamed out of every page and into my soul, and I felt connected to these children. I saw who they were through the lens of the photographer and I fell in love. I want to bring this same passion to my own practice as a photojournalist. I want to capture the world around me in a way that no other medium can do so. As an individual I am passionate about issues of social justice and human rights, and these are subjects I wish to explore in my future as a documentary practitioner. I am drawn to the power of photography as a medium for provoking change and a tool for documenting the past and present.
