In 2017 I was invited to go to Colombia as a voluntary photographer with the charity Oasis of hope charity in Santa marta Colombia. Over the 2 weeks there I was part of their school where I took many shots of the kids and got to know a lot of them. I also said with one of the families from the school which was a blessing. One of the days we went to a local slum called pueblo Viejo where we went and seen 3rd world level poverty. We went to specific family house which the charity helped. Unfortunately, on my way back I was robbed at knife point where I lost 5k worth of camera equipment. But I am ready to go back and capture more of the world.
