Cameron (MainManCam) - 19    Morgan State University (Music Engineering)   "I can use this platform to promote my craft and creativity. I'm a musician. First hand experience in places outside of my own backyard can only give my music more depth and raw emotion. Music is a universal language. I can learn from traveling to different places how to appreciate and incorporate different sounds. Photography can be used as a tool to document and for visual story telling and emotion.  While traveling I can use photography to capture the moment. Also, it's a perfect way to show others what life can truly be. Photography will allow me to make my own album covers and show fans what my life is really like. I want to see the world and I want to share it. It's too big for me to only stay in one place."      Dream Destination: ENGLAND

  Salim - 18     Bowie State University (Music Engineering)    "I have always been fascinated by photography and how you can capture a moment and save it forever. I am planning to get into the music business as a producer and engineer. Photography would give me another avenue to be able to be involved with the creative process and seeing how making music and visuals coincide. This opportunity will give me a chance to find people from different countries/states to create art with.   I also just enjoy taking pictures of interesting things I see and I think being a part of "A Looking Glass Project" will help me discover the ins and outs of photography."     Dream Destination: FRANCE

  India - 18    Baltimore City College (Biology)   Traveling to another city or country while practicing photography will help me with my goals in the medical field. Seeing other parts of the world and how those there differ from where I'm from can really broaden my knowledge and background needed to be successful in my career. My high school biology teacher would discussed her travels and health tips with us and I found that helpful. I would like to be able to pass that same knowledge on to others. This type of program will also help expand my mindset, experience and world knowledge.  I'm also interested in modeling. Photography and modeling go hand in hand.        Dream Destination: SPAIN

  Kajuan (Simba) -18    Community College of Baltimore County (Photography)   "Obtaining a passport and visiting another country to further my horizons in the field of photography will help me reach my personal and professional goals because it's always been my dream to travel the world and show people who don't get the chance to see the beauties of the world. I want to show things from a perspective that is deemed unconventional or show every day things in a way that no one has ever seen before.   I feel alive looking through the lens of a camera. I love beautiful things, whether it be music, art, nature, etc. All I know for sure is that if I can contribute to the exposure of beautiful things that people see in this world, then I'm all for it."      Dream Destination: CHINA

  Aya - 18    Baltimore City College High School (Design & Fashion)   "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

  Cameron S. - 18    Morgan State University (Architecture & Planning)   Exploring the world allows me to view the different designs from other countries and cities that I don't usually get to see. It [The Looking Glass Project] will help broaden my imagination, creativity and give me multiple ideas of ways to improve my own city (or any city).  Photography is a huge admiration of mine. Taking a photo, for me, is like being able to capture a part of a scene (a moment in time) and studying it's perfection and being able to relive that moment.      Dream Destination: GREECE
