This month for the photo blog challenge the theme is "Photographer's Choice" and I'm choosing to feature photos that I took for the organization My Story Matters, and non-profit organization whose mission statement is- "My Story Matters creates storybooks which help lift a child’s self-esteem, give individuals courage to face difficult situations, and tell stories that uplift and encourage each of us to be better. These experiences are extremely rewarding." The project that I was lucky enough to help with was taking pictures of refugee girls living in Salt Lake. The girls I photographed were sisters from Tanzania. As you can see from the pictures below they like to have fun, tease each other and play soccer. The pictures I took were made into books that the girls can keep to tell their story. Below the pictures are some of the messages that were included in the book.
"I am smart'
"I like to have fun"
"I like to play"
"I love my family"
"I am happy"
"I am strong"
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the pictures in the comment section below.
