To my aspiring photographers: keep doing what you do, keep taking pictures. I promise you will grow as long as you keep viewing the world in the way only a photographer can. One day you’re going to look back and see it. How far you’ve come. I assure you.
Hi I’m Charlie.
There is something about this set of photos that makes me question my turning point. I went from a girl with nothing, no friends, a lack of happiness and hated everything about myself. I didn’t have the best happy childhood ever despite my loving family. Growing up I was repeatedly asked the same question “what do you want to be when you are older” my very simple but complicated answer was “happy, I want to be happy” and thinking about that now makes me sad. Now as a 16 year old I’m happy I’ve achieved the person I’ve always wanted to be yet this hasn’t limited that. I have friends, a best friend even. I’ve made the most wonderful friends on here especially ( @phansterdam thank you lovely) and I’m who I want to be. I have a voice an education an mind that is full of wonder waiting to be discovered. I’m proud of myself for this journey. So thank you 💕
