1396719317950I attended El Camino College from 2011-2013, and I was on the staff of the newspaper, the magazine and the creative arts journal in some combination the entire time I was there. I put in a lot of work, and it continues to pay off.

Last night I got a very excited text from my former adviser letting me know that I won 1st place in the state competition for a photo essay I did on Crenshaw Blvd with my friend Phil Prins.

I also finally got my plaque for winning 1st place in column writing.

I continue to receive positive affirmation that changing my career direction midlife was a good decision.
