My biggest passion in my life has always been my artwork. About 5 years ago, I picked up my first digital camera and once I started snapping away, I couldn’t stop. As I grew older and more educated about the world around me, I knew that I could not only use my passion for my creative expression, but to help make improvements in the world around me.

I would spend my time traveling the world, photographing the different hardships that the people on this wonderful planet live on in a simplistic yet artistically pleasing style. I want to help raise awareness to the nitty-gritty that the media doesn’t want us to focus on. There will always be darkness in the world, but there will also be hungry minds in the world with open hearts that will want to protest rights and give. I want to be a part of something so much bigger than just myself in the world, I want to help make it a better place.

My initial game plan is to attend school in Seattle, Washington to major in photography. From there, I plan on documenting the various living conditions and activism groups in the local area. The next step is to inform people, organize community clean-ups and volunteer days to help improve the community and to start building a better world. After a considerable amount of time doing this, I would like over America, and travel to different countries to help make a difference.
