CARA MIA ’22
Growing up I never dreamed I would be a photographer. I got my B.A. in English and Creative Writing and always thought I would go to law school and write on the side. Everything changed when I met my husband, who actually bought me my first camera after back-to-back trips to Iceland and South Africa.
I was battling some major depression at the time, and in a lot of ways, I think photography saved me. It gave me an outlet to create meaningful art and make real connections with people at a time when I felt a lot of loneliness and lack of motivation to do anything.
Since then I’ve been obsessed—it’s what I feel I was born to do. I live in Utah, but I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world doing what I love.
