Before continuing on to college (she attends Tulane University spring semester) she took off time to explore the world and make a difference. Her travels took her to many destinations in Asis, including volunteer time with Mad for Good near Seim Reap, Cambodia where she practiced Dog Meets World. In her words “I started taking photos and like everyone from the village swarmed around me. It was amazing to watch everyone see themselves in a photo for the first time.”
