Ever since I was an outlandishly loud little girl, I have devoted everything I have towards the goal I am striving to accomplish. That goal is centered on leaving my mark as I do everything I can to help make this world a better place. I love life and the chances it gives us to make impactful moments. I aspire to gain a true sense of the world around me by traveling and immersing myself in the beauty of other cultures. I am a storyteller, and I would love to help you tell yours. Whether I use my camera, words, music, or voice; I will dedicate my artistic expression to helping those in need and creating joy.
