A last minute request for the presence of What I Be at Columbia University’s Mental Health Week left me feeling beyond grateful and extremely inspired. I was given an opportunity to photograph 79 students during the week and once again, was able to be apart of a Mental Health Week for yet another Ivy league.
I was impressed with the schools participation and excitement in the project and I heard a handful of new stories too. I am thrilled to have been involved with these students lives and I hope their picture is a continuous reminder that they are stronger than the insecurity that has been haunting them.
Hopefully What I Be will be back next year for Columbia University’s Mental Health Week 2014.
