Senior Showcase: Photojournalism senior shows her favorite frames

Karen Vela Lima celebrates her Quinceañera in Bowling Green. This cultural celebration symbolizes the transition from childhood to womanhood. “It means that I’m a girl coming of age and I’m not the little girl that I used to be,” Vela Lima said. “I’m becoming a woman now.”

Kendall Warner

My name is Kendall Warner, and I am a senior graduating from the photojournalism program with a minor in political science. This is my second semester working for the College Heights Herald as a staff photographer. I am originally from and still call northern Virginia home, but shortly after graduation, I will be heading to Victoria, Texas, to intern at the Victoria Advocate as a photojournalist. I have been doing photography since I was a sophomore in high school where I started by shooting completely on film, developing and printing my own photos in a dark room. My dream is to one day work in the political field of photojournalism in the Washington, D.C. area.
