When I was 12, my father handed me a camera and taught me how to take pictures. Since then, Camera is a part of my body and it completes me. It has helped me to overcome my anxiety during eight years of living as a refugee and then as an immigrant. My interest in photography arose when I realized I could make a fleeting moment, or an experience, or emotion, eternal.
However, It was the spring of 2014, when my plane landed at Pearson International Airport of Toronto and I took my first steps on this land with a glimmer of hope to “make it big” and become the person I always wanted to be! For many immigrants, transitioning into a new life is financially, socially, and psychologically challenging. I believe that Immigrants are true adventurers. They choose to leave behind whatever they had, move to an unknown land and start a whole new life from scratch. But, we all have a dream that stay with us no matter where we are and for me that dream is to become a well-known photographer.
