My name is Laura Daniela Lozada Mejia. I was born in a small town called Montenegro, yes I know just like the country in Europe, but no that is not the one. My town is located in the centre of Colombia, South America. Daughter of a single mother, I learned that in order to become someone in life you need to wrestle, and I mean that literally, with all you have to achieve each goal you set your mind to. She taught me that, therefore, I considered her my personal hero.
When I was 17 years old, I decided to start fighting for everything I want in life. It was time for me to show the world what I was capable of doing and apply all the lessons I had learned from my mother. So I moved to Canada. This wonderful country has allowed me to dream big every day, there are unlimited possibilities for me to achieve what I desire the most and this is just the beginning.
In Canada, I discovered my passion for photography and videography. My dream is to be able to capture unmemorable moments in my life and in other people’s lives. I want to tell stories through the lenses of my cameras and show the world how I see reality. I want to be able to create stories that would speak to people in a way that only I can do.
I am currently attending Humber College, enrolled in a Bachelor’s Degree in Digital Communications. This program has opened different doors for me, I have been able to learn many skills that I never thought I would learn. Not only I am learning about photography and videography, but I am also able to manage a variety of social media platforms, I have basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, I can work with Adobe Creative Cloud such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere, Audition, After Effects and Dreamweaver. I am also learning about Digital Marketing and Advertising.
Join me on this journey, it is a work in progress but that I believe it would go far where I want it to go. Thank you.
