My First Two Weeks at JHP

Today is the end of my second week as an intern at the Josephine Herrick Project. Working for them is a great experience for me because I am able to get involved with a nonprofit organization and also to explore more about myself and my future goals. I love what JHP does for students like me and also for many other people, which is helping them to see the world in a different perspective through a camera. I feel happy giving a little of me to the organization and also this helped me to think about a new goal for my future where I see myself helping others. During these two weeks I did learn a lot from Diane and Jessica. I also enjoyed going to an exhibition of images that were taken by high school students like me that were part of a JHP program. I went to see how Diane taught the classes to other kids, and I remembered when I was also getting photography classes from other teachers who were also working for JHP.
