WELCOME to my Apollo Project Page!
Throughout this year in Apollo I plan to pursue my passions through my work and projects. I have a passion for inspiring and loving people through fashion, traveling, missionary work and spreading my knowledge of life. People are essentially my passion and I hope to express this in each of my projects.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. " -Theodore Roosevelt
This quote by Theodore Roosevelt is a reminder to live each day to the fullest and to put everything you have into what you do. I live by this every day and incorporate it into my Apollo projects. Feel free to take a look at my work! Enjoy.
In my first project I focused on my passion for fashion. I read the novel the Great Gatsby, analyzing Gatsby's character. I found a personal connection to the way Gatsby lived a mysterious life in the 1920's. I focused on this time period while creating a flapper dress for Gatsby's character but it would be for Gatsby if he was a woman living in this time period.
In my second project I focused on my passion for helping others. I decided to create my own nonprofit called YouForMe for teens suffering made by me, a teen who has suffered. I created a logo for my nonprofit, wrote many blog posts and did extensive research on different social media to see how it could help me in my nonprofit.
In my third project, I continued on my passion for helping others and put more ideas out for my nonprofit. I got a big start on my nonprofit, even started reaching out to other teens and helping people through journals. I analyzed cultural views on depression and anorexia and wrote journals from different perspectives.
In my fourth project, I focused on my passion for photography. I worked with my classmate, Alex Santarelli to build a photo collection and gallery including 25 photographs based around the theme 30,000, the number of days the average person has to live. We captured the beauty in everyday lives into five different categories.
