Although I identify culturally with water through my Caribbean roots, I see myself as a non-bender in the way I am constantly creating new projects and thinking creatively about synthesizing tools that are at my disposal.
This journey is an experiment to see just how far I can walk down the path of my dreams by pushing against all forms of convention.

A question I like to ask people is, "What do you think is the strongest 'thing' in the world?" For me, water is the answer. Water is life. Water is change. Water is strength. I believe that we can all learn a lot about water, how it adapts and moves with each environment. So I guess it is safe to say that if I was bender, water would be my element. Having the chance to go on this trip, not only to explore new places but also explore myself, is such a honor. Also there is the fact that I am a photographer. Plain and simple, I take pictures to remember the simple moments of life and to teach myself to find beauty in the smallest parts of this world. Being able to capture the essence of this trip, the people, the places, would be the challenge of a life time, and I can't wait to try my hand at it.
