Kory is a senior at Cy-Creek High School with a great sense of humor, is an awesome writer, and has a love for animals and fast cars. She is also quiet, listens to Modest Mouse, has a dog named Bobo and a lizard named Belial. And the first thing she did when she got her license was drive to a salon, chop her hair off, and had it dyed blue.
To be honest, getting her portrait made and talking about herself is not her thing. She was straight with us about that from the beginning, but the love for her mom got her in front of our lens (and we are glad it did). Hopefully, she sees this fierce girl who has ability, authenticity, beauty, greatness, strength, style, and just plain badassery.
Kory, it was a pleasure working with you and even more of a pleasure meeting you. We leave you with this:
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference.” – Steve Jobs
