On her experience with ICP:

I have studied and worked at ICP since high school, so about four years. Teen Academy was my sanctuary, but ICP will always be my home. From the black-and-white darkroom, color darkroom, and digital photography to the Imagemakers program, I have been blessed with a photo-family. Without ICP, I would have never experienced the darkroom and the true Narnia that exists within darkroom photography.
