"This 'Looking Glass Project' experience would be a wonderful opportunity for me. The opportunity to travel abroad would be a global gateway for new experiences. This wouldn't just be recreational for me. It would be educational.
I've always loved photography. Being able to learn how to capture beautiful moments in my life and the lives of others is very important to me. I've been wanting to travel to Brazil for very long time. To get the chance to experience Brazilian culture and capture my experiences along the way would be an amazing experience.
Being able to observe fashion styles and trends internationally has been a dream of mine. Getting a first hand look at different cultures adds to my wealth of knowledge and would be a great experience that could open doors for jobs in my future career in design and fashion styling.
I mean, photography and fashion go hand in hand!"
Dream Destination: BRAZIL
