One of my passions is photography. It really helps me to express myself and to be as creative as possible. I have been taking pictures of friends and family from a very young age. I got my first camera when I was about ten, it was a Sony camera and I loved it. I took it everywhere I went.

I knew I wanted to somehow pursue this hobby that gives me so much joy, so in 9th grade, I joined photography 1. That was my favorite class I have ever taken. It showed me how creative and intense photography can be. Photos are worth a thousand words and can be so dark and deep or very happy and beautiful.

In my free time, I like to improve my skills in photography and learn more about how to take amazing photos. I watch YouTube videos and figure out anything that I don’t already know or improve the things I already know.

I’m hoping this January to start applying for summer photography internships or to just learn even more about it. I’m trying to start putting together my portfolio of all the best and most unique pictures I have taken. That’s my number one goal right now and I’m working towards it little by little.

I personally believed any dreams are obtainable if you work towards them and give it your all. Also, don’t let anyone tell you that you won’t get anywhere if you live a certain lifestyle or go after a certain thing. Trust your gut and be happy!
