Introduce Yourself: I am Meghan. I am 18 years old. I am in my first year of college. I am studying digital cinema. A passion of mine is photography.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I think everyone in this world is good, especially once you get to know them. I think we live in a world where people are quick to judge you based off appearances and what they have heard. We are all guilty of it. I always feel awful for judging somebody and then getting to know them and they are really nice. I think we don’t interact as much as we should, people should want to know other people’s stories. Everyone is so different and been through things you might have not experienced. Even the “bad “ people were once good. You need to hear everyone out before making someone out to be what they aren’t.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I really want to open up my own photography business in California. This has been a dream of mine. I also want to do video editing and be a director. As well as some acting. I think a life like that would be so amazing. These are things I’m passionate about. But I also hope these aren’t my only jobs I want to experience many things in my life meet many different people and help people.
How would you impact the world?: I want to impact the world through pictures, showing people women can be directors, and helping countries in poverty. I want to go to many places and take pictures and meet the people who live their. I want to find out as many stories about people as I possibly can. I think the more people we get to know the more the world will become a better place. Pictures also can send out so much emotion and tell a story. I know it’s 2018 and women have power. But not many women have power in the industry of Hollywood movie production. No one really listens to the women in this field or respects them. I want to show young girls they can get somewhere through hard work, and that it’s not all about luck. I want to help countries by helping get them water, food, fixing up the towns they live in,helping them get medical help, and schools.
Struggles In Life? : I struggle with anxiety, not being happy, and never feeling motivated. Anxiety is something that effects my everyday life. I get paranoid people don’t like me. I can barley say hi to someone without over thinking it for too long. I have little episodes where I spazz out for a couple minutes at a time and need to catch my breathe. I worry way too much about the littlest of things, this effects me doing things I want to do because having fun worries me. I am never happy with myself. Physically I get upset with my apparence. I wish to always change it and constantly worry what other think about how bad I look. Mentally I always think my best work is the worst. I could feel really good about a photo I took and then critique myself so hard I end up hating the photo I took. I never love the work I create and it makes me hate doing what I love because I beat myself up so much about it. I always feel like I could look better and do better. The no motivation part shows with me losing interest in things I love so much, so easily. This comes with me thinking people won’t like the work I have created. I will want to go out and take pictures and then not feel motivated to do so. It makes me beat myself up because I shouldn’t care how other people care about my work as long as I love it.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : I’m going to be honest I hate myself. Well hate is a strong word I am unhappy with myself. Physically I want a nice body. I hate how I don’t have the motivation to work out, and I just sit around here and wishing i didn’t have to work on my body. I also feel like working out shows no signs of me losing the weight or getting a bigger butt and tighter arms. It’s hard since I have an image in my head of what I want to look like. As well as other people. My body makes me not confident. My lack of confidence is very noticeable.
What does love mean to you?: Love to me is accepting people and allowing them to grow. I think people hold too much hate in their hearts instead we should just be spreading love. Love comes in many forms. I’ve never experienced a real real love. But I got love from friends and family and that’s all I could ask for. A real love is something special lucky people get to have. Love is something we take for granted and we never should.
