If you were given the opportunity—paint can in hand and all—to graffiti anything you please, what would you paint? If you had the power in your hands to cover a public, highly visible fence with inappropriate imagery and hateful slurs, would you pounce on the opportunity? Are you a person who would rather spread hate than spread love?
Charlotte loves using photography to get involved in social justice issues, building applications with computer science, innovating ways to save the environment, and helping her community. She runs a Bay Area Initiative called the Community Photobooth that combines family photoshoots with philanthropy, and hosts an annual Photoshoot-Fundraiser every summer to rally even more support for local nonprofits. She also created and regularly contributes to the Focus Photo-Journal, an online photo-blog that aims to spread awareness on important issues through photojournalism. She loves to express her creativity and unleash her curiosity whenever she can–whether that’s behind her Nikon camera, through coding, or getting on her hands and knees to plant more trees around her community.
