“Harness your own originality and what makes you unique. Because I know that when you’re a teenager, and even sometimes when you are an adult, what sets you apart can feel like a burden, and it’s not… a lot of the time it’s what makes you great.”
It was such a pleasure to photograph Olivia. She is a motivated senior, who also works part time and takes classes for cosmetology school! Talk about a busy schedule!
Talking with Olivia about her schedule and how she balances her time made me think of my own experience in high school. I can definitely remember the chaos of participating in extracurriculars, doing homework, trying to find time to hang out with friends… all while having the stress of determining what you want to do for the rest of your life. It’s a lot of pressure for that age. Olivia is definitely taking advantage of opportunities and is well on her way to a successful life after graduation. I wish her the best for the remainder of her senior year.
