My dear friend Cynthia is one of those people who walk in sunshine. She's been my friend through some of the very hardest times of my life, and she will always give you her complete attention. She loves her family, she loves her friends, and she genuinely cares about people. It's a gift that she has, listening and loving.
But one of my favorite things about her, is that she went back to school, after her babies were born, and tirelessly pursued her dreams. Sometimes it's the smallest things that push us into our path, and just letting go of the fear that we aren't capable/worthy/talented enough. One picture on Humans of New York, with the line...I wasn't lucky enough to have ever found what I wanted to do. Don't get me wrong--I did nicely. But I never found my passion."
She's days away from her Interior Design Degree, Designing for Sage Homes, and generally conquering the world. I want to photograph all women like this. Women who run the world, with grace and kindness, and leave everyone a little bit better for it. Even better is women who lift up other women and focus on community over competition. So proud of you Cyndo!
