Elaina D., NCES Student

Today we are proud to introduce you to Elaina, a high school senior and a student of North Coast Education Services.  Elaina is an up-and-coming photographer, whose photography artistry will be displayed shortly at the Solon Public Library.  This blog post includes information about the Elaina’s art exhibit and sale, as well as her personal biography.

First, meet the artist!  Here is Elaina’s autobiography, an inside look into the life of this inspiring young lady:

Elaina – A NCES Success Story

“I really enjoy taking photographs of nature. To first observe, then to successfully capture a special or distinct image, just energizes me. I first began taking pictures when I was eleven. My mom encouraged me and bought me my first camera when I was thirteen.  My grandparents later upgraded my equipment and I took it from there. I have begun to sell some of my work and plan to earn part of my living with my photography.”

Rising Above the Waters

“I was born in Kamchatka, Russia and was adopted when I was about a year old.  I was born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, which causes me to have learning and memory challenges. I am grateful for the many opportunities and support which I have had that has help me to grow, manage, conquer and defy expected outcomes.

Personal Hobbies

“I grew up on a small farm and have always enjoyed animals and nature. Presently, I am 19 years old and will be a senior in high school this fall. Aside from photography, I enjoy cooking, reading, working with animals and traveling.”
