Edith Awuor

My last name in my language (Luo) means that when my mother was pregnant she liked to eat a lot. I am fourteen and the third-born in my family of two brothers and three sisters, together with my mother and father. We live in Dandora estate which is very noisy. With Shootback, MYSA introduced a new thought for us – photography. I was interested in taking photos and I have achieved a lot. Apart from knowing how to handle expensive cameras, I also know how to position myself towards the light which plays a big role in photographing. My hobbies are playing football, swimming, taking photos, sharing new ideas, listening to music and rapping. On our football team I am the captain. My ambition in life is to become a professional journalist. I like taking pictures so when I am sad I can look at them and smile at myself.
