Photography is kind of my "thing" if you want to call it that, or if you want to get more specific, it's my passion. I don't really do "staged" photography. I prefer to capture real, true moments because that's where you see the real, true emotions. This is the main reason behind why I want to go into photojournalism. This is where this blog comes in. Recently, I have been invited to attend the Washington Journalism and Media Conference, or WJMC for short. Basically, it's a conference held at George Mason University for high school students interested in journalism. Here, you get to meet iconic figures in the industry, and strengthen your skills in the areas of journalism. This is an absolutely amazing opportunity for me, as it will help me to be noticed by colleges and give me a head start in my career. As of right now, I'm working on getting registered and sending in information to be considered for a scholarship. I'm also working on coming up with fundraising ideas and finding sponsors that will help me out financially.
I honestly don't know if I'll have any more than one reader of this blog, (Hi, Dad.) but this is just for me to document my journey leading up to, and during, WJMC. We'll just say that it's for sentimental reasons.
