Turning 24 is actually pretty special for me.
I hope you’ll allow me about 15 minutes of your time to tell you some silly anecdotes and some of the adversities I have overcome in my life… because, today I turn twice the age I was, when I came very close to ending it. I am proud to be a survivor, and although sometimes the fight is exhausting, I will keep fighting and I hope you will too.
One piece of advice I will never forget came from a friend’s mother, she told me, “This isn’t forever. You will look back on this and it will be so far away.” The day is here, and I definitely came out… mostly alright, haha! So thank you to all the people in my life who showed me kindness, who gave me guidance and support when I needed you most. Thank you, thank you!
If you would like to donate to my birthday fund (http://bit.ly/1sWhNbR) towards some new camera equipment, classes, and other cool things that will help me produce photo and video content, it would be a wonderful gift and I would be so grateful!
