As a youth volunteer over a 30 year period, I found kid’s hope flourishes when focused on achievable goals, and encouraged to “go for it.” I still try to find young people to encourage. Through my photography, I create inspiring images for positive self-image and hope. This young lady is a hard working ballet student who has won my respect at her young age. She applies herself to many hours of study and practice. May all young people truly become all you can be!
