Photographer/ECE Yasin Osman helps his neighbourhood the only way he knows how: with his camera.
I was determined to design this photography-based program in a way that was enjoyable as possible without really having cameras. At first I was worried that the kids wouldn’t be motivated, but as I taught them week after week they would come back more eager to learn. That’s when I realized it was the love for this art that would continue to motivate them, regardless if we had camera equipment or not.
Words cannot describe how the kids felt when they were surprised with the cameras in the above episode of The Creator Class. One of them came up to me and asked tentatively, “Are you sure that we’re allowed to keep them?”. They couldn’t believe it.
I told the kids I never knew for sure that this would happen, but I believed it would and that was one of the biggest lessons the kids took from this experience: If you dream it and believe it, you will achieve it.
What was only a dream a year ago has became reality.
