Career Aspirations

  • I still have the same career aspiration to succeed in the field of Photography. As a result I am thinking of ways of progressing forward with my career in Photograph post my US Military electromagnetic abuse experience. In 2013, my Masters in Photography was disrupted and I never had a chance to enjoy or complete my education. As a result I have decided to go back to university and enroll in a different but equally rewarding Masters (MA) program that will allow me to integrate old, new and emerging skills and areas of knowledge. I intend to keep my options open for further educational opportunities including but not limited to a PHD program.
