Valerie Mora, Photographer

Entering her first year as a photographer, Valerie Mora, 10, hopes to expand her interest in journalism and push herself outside her comfort zone to achieve her college and career goals. Outside of school, Mora dedicates her time to photography, fashion design, and community service. After high school, she plans to attend either UCLA or USC, major in Psychology, and become a psychologist.

“Something about the human brain and the way it works and the way certain people react to certain situations based on how they were raised or things that have happened to them just really interests me,” Mora said. “I like to figure things out, I like analyzing things, and I want to help those people who have struggled with mental illnesses so that they don’t feel alone.”
