I was raised by a single mother who worked 3:00pm-3:00am to put food on the table, give us clean beds and clean clothes.
It taught me how fragile life can be, and yet we were very happy to be together. We appreciated everything we had because in spite of arguments and disagreements we always knew that we had each other's back no matter what. I realized that we were human and every human has their moments where things get bad. It helped me to become a confident, sympathetic, aware human being who loves to capture people's moments of conflict or sadness.
