These photographs were snapped with my Canon point and shoot, I wish I had had my better camera with me!

Everyday I’m Hustlin’

Or in my case… struggling’. Life is full of ups and downs and this year has been no different. I started the 2014 year / finished my first year of the Product Design degree with my highest grades ever. Then I busted my butt all summer in an attempt to earn enough money for tuition and the […]
