In her own words;
“My camera has been my passport to many different worlds and I hope many more I’ve yet to experience”
“I believe a photograph has the power to make us laugh or cry, inspire us to travel, change our style and how we dress, It can also help to educate us by broadening our understanding of the political climate and issues around the world”
