I am a photographer, filmmaker, producer, scuba diver, friend, sister, daughter, auntie. How I see myself has changed dramatically over the past six months. Last year my best friend was killed in a car accident and I have not felt whole since. Now I am gradually picking up the pieces.

The broken mirror image is repeated, however it is now visible that some pieces of glass are missing, alluding to the fact that I do not see myself as whole or complete.
