A success story :)

Ok in reality, it's one of many, but this one is the one i'm most proud of to date. So as you all may know by now, I have been teaching a photo club this past semester for my older students (mostly 10th-11th forms). This past week three of my students entered a photo contest for all the schools in the town, and to my delight, placed in the top three spots!

I couldn't contain my excitement, and had to write a short success story due to the fact that my passion is photography, and seeing my students sweep this contest really gave me a huge boost in the confidence section.

Not only did they win, but this wave of successful projects brought on a whole new wave of enthusiasm for making photo projects. This afternoon everyone was asking about what they could do to make a good project. I feel extremely fortunate for all these opportunities, and can't even explain the gratitude I have for my wonderful counterpart, Dasha, for all the help and support she has given me to catapult my dream into action.

Thanks again to National Geographic for the resources and the support.
