"I started to study photography and soon I felt connected with this art like Malcolm X in his essay “Literacy Behind Bars” did with his desire for words and stories. He was self-taught, had an intensive aim to learn. His sensation of freedom through literature and learning was everything as he explains, “In fact, up to then, I never had been so truly free in my life” (580). I felt similarly with photography because I found a voice to express myself. To me, photography was writing with light; and for the first time, I was in a school who praised my creativity and wanted me to think out of box. Teachers asked me for new ways to see the world showing me that creativity is a life definition without limits. I felt happy studying for the first time."
