I want to be a world changer. I believe everyone wants to be a world changer in their own unique and beautiful way. For some, they want to change the world with words that inspire hope and confidence. Others want to change the world for the better with their actions, promoting love, peace, joy and service along the way. For me, I want to be a world changer with my photography.
My 2013 Urban Exposure Project experience started in January when a friend sent me a message on Facebook with a link to the project. I have always been passionate about social issues and getting involved in making a difference. I was intrigued and excited about the chance to combine my love of photography with a passion for social issues and a desire to learn more about what is happening in my own city.
Our first official meeting for Urban Exposure Project 2013 was a meet and greet social in late February. I had the sheer privilege and joy of meeting and journeying through the project with some amazing fellow participants, coordinators, mentors and professional photographers. One of the biggest things I have learned through this is the power of contagious passion. I saw such a joy and passion in everyone involved in Urban Exposure Project 2013 and it was absolutely amazing and inspiring, to say the least. I can’t thank everyone enough.
