In 1st grade, she entered her first photography contest when the PTSA offered something called Reflections. Little did we know it is a National PTA run program that starts at the local level, advances to District level, States and then to the National forum.
After 9 years, of entering the Reflections contests at elementary and middle school levels, every year advancing to Districts, and earning an Award of Merit last year; her first entry in the high school division earned an Award of Excellence and is advancing to the State level!

Heather’s artist statement:
“2.1 billion people in the world go daily without food. The rest of us are privileged enough to have food on our tables and access to clean water.

Since many of us are privileged, giving to the poor isn’t hard; it only takes one family, one person, one can of food to change the world.”
Congratulations Heather! Good luck at States!
