Adventures of Berkeley, CA

Berkeley, California. AKA the most beautiful area in the country. I was blessed with the opportunity to attend the National Student Leadership Conference at the Berkeley campus. I grew out of my comfort zone in photography, gained so many leadership skills, and made some valuable friendships that will last a lifetime.  If you haven't noticed, I'm mostly into portrait photography, but at this conference I really gained an interest in nature/culture photography! Just capturing beautiful moments on the streets and in parks really made me grow as a photographer and person.  God truly blessed me with this opportunity because usually I can't stay at places overnight because of my Type 1 Diabetes.  Diabetes can be really dangerous at times, but I really grew independent with taking care of it. My independence grew so much even by walking the streets of a totally new city and being away from home for so long. Below are pictures of my many adventures at Berkeley and a few of my amazing new friends from all around the country.
