My professor pulled me aside and said, “I think you have a talent in photography and if you don’t do something with it, you’re wasting it.” That was the first time anyone had ever said anything like that to me. No one had ever told me I had a talent or that I was particularly good at something.
I asked her what I should do [...] She told me to transfer into the art program at the University of Georgia and become a photographer. I didn’t have any better plans, and it sounded like a cool thing to do, so I did it.
