My name is Alyssa Castro. I'm from Merced California. The Venice Arts experience was one of the best things I've decided to do in a while. it has impacted me and the other participants in such a posotive way. It has taught some patience, sympathy and maybe just some simple camera techniques but overall everyone involved has gained some knowledge for the better. I appreciate Giselle and Maya coming to my town giving us this chance to experience something new and giving us our voices to help improve our town and it's health. I have grown as a photographer by understanding that I need to go out of my comfort zone for once and see what else is there and it's helped me connect so much more with what I want do with my life, which is photography. I want to see more change not only for my town but everywhere and I think venice arts is one program that takes that step forward to helping improve communities everywhere.
