Elizabeth is a rising senior at Uncommon Leadership Charter High School. In 9th grade, as part of her school requirements, she took her first photography class. Although at first she had no interest in continuing to pursue photography, the more she familiarized herself with a camera, she began to understand that photography was a form of storytelling. To capture moments translated into her letting others view the world through her eyes.

When she is not out photographing, she sings at her church, dances, and loves school. She also likes being of assistance to anyone who needs it and she attributes her character development to this.

“This fellowship is an opportunity for me to continue to show my viewpoint of the world through my lens and the photos that come out of it.”
