I got the amazing opportunity to collaborate with an incredible photojournalist, Patrick Conley who learned of my story from San Francisco Pride press.

He was a finalist for the 2018 Hearst Journalism Awards’ Photojournalism category with a theme, “Year of the Woman”.

So he flew out from Orlando, Florida to San Francisco, California to follow my journey to my award from the Board of Supervisors of San Francisco to my contribution to Human Rights efforts.

What made the experience extra special, is that he won FIRST PLACE for the category!!!
