During my senior year of high school, I decided to put my design, photography, and writing skills to the test... Needless to say, being on the yearbook team was an unforgettable and enjoyable learning experience that helped me not only create pieces to add to my portfolio, but get a preview of what it's like to work with deadlines and real-life "clients."

The Trends Spread:

This was the first spread I ever created for my high school's yearbook. I created the "Trends Spread" at the beginning of the year, before the yearbook team had set up templates for each of the spreads. I'm most proud of this project because not only did I create the layout, but I also took all of the pictures included, created all of the copy, and basically designed the entire spread myself. In addition to this being my first project, and my first "solo project," the Trends Spread was later submitted to CSPA, a yearbook contest, where it won the Gold Award!

Where Running Met Design:

Being the captain of my high school's Varsity Cross Country team, and someone who was so passionate about running, this spread was also very important to me in the sense that it gave me an outlet to highlight and showcase my teammates' talents and successes. Looking back, now while running at Florida State University, I can safely say that this is still one of my favorite spreads to look back on where my career as a "student-athlete" started. 

Raising Awareness:

For this spread, I covered our school's Cancer Awareness Night. Creating it was quite the experience, as I had the pleasure of attending the event to photograph pictures. I really enjoyed being able to attend and later write about how this special night had so many activities for cancer survivors and the families of those who have unfortunately lost their battles with cancer. The event not only raised awareness, but also funds that were later donated to assist further research in all types of cancer.

The Halloween Spread:

This spread, in particular, proved to be a little harder than my other projects. On Halloween, students and staff at my high school, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, have the opportunity to dress up to celebrate the holiday. However, not everyone dresses up... I had to spend the entire day with my camera to be ready to snap pictures of anyone who did decide to dress up at any given moment. Although this spread was hard to create, it was definitely a challenge that became a lot of fun.
