By trade I am a writer and a photographer. I grew up with my father’s Canon SLRs in my hand and a notebook in my back pocket. By the end of the summer, I hope to have a better understanding of what makes people people. I want to explore stories that answer my questions about what drives people thoughts and feeling in life. By the end of the summer, I hope my writing and photography have improved enough to let me better express people’s stories. I hope to be able to investigate topics that allow me to create stories that have a better understanding of youth culture, be it stories about: culture, politics, health or education.
