THE STORY:

I am a graphic designer and photographer living in Sierra Leone. I do photo shoots, cover events such as weddings, birthday occasions etc. I love photography and two months ago, I discovered that there was only one female photographer in the whole seven million plus population. Photographers are not respected in Sierra Leone because it is seen as a substandard profession as compared to being a doctor or lawyer. A few people venture into the photography field and more are males. I decided to change this by mentoring two local female Sierra Leoneans (Joy Gborie and Camareh Sarah Kamara) that were interested in photography. They were also fans of my photography. Today, we cover events and do photo shoots together. Joy Gborie wants to become an accountant. She loves photography and wants to use it to raise money for her university fees. Camareh wants to study public health in the university and use photography to tell the stories of women that suffer from different forms of sicknesses in the country. However, we are constrained with only one camera. We often have to rent two extra cameras for our outdoor shoots but most time, use my T4i camera for practice. I would like to raise $2000 to buy two Canon T4i cameras for Joy and Camareh. I believe in empowering young women in Sierra Leone and photography is a medium I intend to use.
