2017 FALL STAFF
My name is Emeline. I grew up in a little town in the South West of France. I graduated in Communications and Marketing. Traveling, discovering new cultures and meeting new people is an major part of my life. Recently I embarked on a solo eight month journey across Southern Asia and Oceania. Capturing precious moments in life, I realized photography was a new found passion. After returning, I realized making a difference in the way people perceive the world was important to me. Last fall I came to Santa Monica College to learn how to become a professional journalist. Writing comes easy to me in various different topics especially when my interest has been struck.
DIANA PARRA GARCIA
I am a photographer and an artist. I enjoy covering current events and anything that can bring some peace of mind. My main goal is to show what I see and create conversation. Photography and art can go hand in hand so aside from reporting I also enjoy creating scenes/story in my images. I hope to someday cover events around the world and have galleries of my work.
