When did you start doing photography?
Professionally? End of 2015 – But I have started taking pictures since I was a little.
Who influenced you to be a photographer?
No one, I was inspired by the beauty and arts around me. I try not to be “influenced” too much by other photographers’ work. I want my work to be original.
What is the hardest part of being a female photographer?
Well, in photography, the traditional place for women is in front of the lens because the industry has been historically dominated by men. So you know, the basic.
Who or what do you want to take picture of the most?
What is your favorite photo you ever took of?
Photographs of wonderful people I came across while I was in England.
What is your strongest personal quality?
I’m a lionheart.
What does women empowerment means to you?
Women empowerment is a simple concept. It starts at home – when parents give equal opportunities to their sons and daughters. My parents have raised me that way. I have always been given the opportunity to decide and speak for myself – and to not depend on anyone but myself. I think it’s really important to raise girls with self-confidence, self-esteem, a sense of self-worth – and trust.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Maintaining my life as a working housewife – I would have my studio at home, hence I would not have to be away from my family that much. I’m a hard-worker, but I want to be a full-time wife and mother.
What is your favorite Puyo Desserts?
Puyo Silky Cotton Candy!

Work hard, LOVE YOURSELF, and never hurt anyone. “Be good, good, good, better, better, best, best, best you can be. Real, real, very real.”
