This contest is not random … I want to hear from you.   Specifically, I want to know WHY you or your friend/sister/daughter, etc. should win.

What makes you YOU?

There are no guidelines as to what you should say … I want to hear authentic stories from any CLASS OF 2018 SENIOR who would love a session with me….more than just a “bio” though.  Be real with me – your story stays with me & will not be made public.  (If you are entering yourself, then write it about yourself – if you are nominating someone else, write it about them.)
