Daily Foto: Making Friends with Foto in Brazil

NEW Phodographer Emily Kaplan in Mangueira, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The BEST side effect of sharing photos with Dog Meets World is making new friends. The personal photos these girls received from Emily and the other students volunteering as part of an Alternative Break program organized through Hillel at the University of Maryland will be kept for years….maybe a lifetime. The girls will have long forgotten Emily’s name, but not how she made them feel by affirming them in this way! Diplomacy for everyone.
