In a New Light: Under the Surface - Lydia, 16 - "School in Blue"
There are obstacles, like being in the cold water, or the west-suits being really tight but that's how life is. If you get past all of that you can have great experiences. You are totally free to let your creativity flow. Swimming felt like making art.
About Lydia: My name is Lydia and I'm 17 years old. I'm from Minnesota. I came to Northwest Passage looking to learn the skills that would enable me to be successful in life; to find ways of working on things I struggle with, in order for my strengths to have the chance to help me achieve that success. The In a New Light programming has helped shed light on my strengths and how I can use them to my advantage. It has also helped me identify the things I struggle with. You know that saying. "How you do anything is how you do everything? Well, it applies to photography as well. Photography is something I struggle with on a smaller scale than just life itself , I have experienced this for the first time through participating in this program.
