My name is Kassandra Ruiz. I was born and raised in South Florida in a home that was always filled with many people, especially children. I grew up looking after my nieces and nephews and at an early age, I became my mothers helper; always mimicking her compassion and caring ways. When I picked up photography in my teens, my lively family was my main subject and I enjoyed hiding from the world behind my lens. Now, I'm in my mid-twenties and all remains the same, except I have more to say and less to hide from.
