Senior Study Hall hosts Teen Enrichment 101 for Homeless Youth
Sponsors for the event include Kroger, Black River Imaging, LAMIK Beauty, ShootProof, Photographer’
Senior Study Hall is an organization for high school students and photographers that celebrates the cultures and diversity of teenagers across the United States. Their blog showcases styling trends, beauty secrets, and tips on finding scholarships for high school students along with posts about proper etiquette, self-esteem issues and making positive life choices.
Senior Study Hall’s blog also serves as a platform where photographers who capture high school seniors portraits, can use their artistic talents and feature their quirky, fun and “outside the box” photo shoots from across the United States. The teens, in essence will be able to see themselves in an artistic fashion; hopefully realizing just how unique they really are.
Founder of Senior Study Hall Tomayia Colvin, a teacher and high school portrait photographer, launched Senior Study Hall after shooting high school seniors and hearing countless times: “Oh, I don’t look that good”, “you’re just saying that”, and “I look fat”. As a mom and teacher her heart longed to provide a safe haven just for them. She set out with a vision to launch a nonprofit organization with a blog/site in which every teen regardless of size, shape, or ethnicity would be celebrated and every future client would be able to see themselves as beautiful.
To help support the ongoing efforts to make every teen feel unique and beautiful please visit: Teen Enrichment 101 (http://www.gofundme.com/
