For the people at Georgia State that know me, they know me for being the photographer with huge dreams and aspirations. I’ve put countless hours of work into school, my job, and also photography. Working for Georgia State’s Public Relations and Marketing Communications team has taught me so much about soft skills, writing proper emails, working in a professional space, and not being afraid to reach out. Which was everything I needed ...

Environmental issues are a problem; global warming, climate change, and pollution are three of many things which affect the world we live in.
