Winning the Lenscratch student prize has been an incredible experience.  It has provided more than I could have ever expected, from Aline’s incredible mentoring and personal dedication, to the tremendous amount of exposure and personal connections that followed.  The support of Lenscratch propelled my artistic career forward, providing opportunities that were out of reach prior and pushing beyond personal expectations.  Students at every level of education should apply for the award and embrace the process without a doubt.”
