"I was a 20 y/o college student when I started exploring photography. At the time, I didn't realize how much image making would influence me. Diving deeper, I started to question what photography meant to me and understand its impact. Eventually, I found passion in creating a narrative for myself and my work: I found an outlet and poured my heart and soul into the artistry, and it transformed my perspective. This story became my life force, my pulse, and a part of my identity."
