You are all beautiful and perfect just the way you are.Please do not blog my photos as your thinspiration. It makes me cry, thinking that people are encourging themselves to skip meals because of the photos of myself, friends and sister. If you do blog them on your thinspiration site, i will try and contact you and tell you that you are perfect just the way you are and starving yourself isn't going to help.
Thank you so much to Tori and Kameron who wrote me a very nice testimonial right after my 365 was over. Thank you so much, it meant the world to me. ;) Now go check out their streams, because they are very talented.
Ask me about doing print exchanges.

Tori Toguchi says:
"I think this is a long overdue testimonial for you. Seriously.
I have had the honor of watching you grow into an amazing-awesome photographer as well as watch you get some front pages on newspapers and the likes which is damn awesome. Of course you're going to be an amazing photographer. :) Not only are you an awesome photographer, gotten on newspapers, got an internship, had a friend get bit by a shark, you have an awesome personality which makes you extremely likable and makes you even more awesome in my book. You are kind and have been a good contact-friend, it's really to bad we don't live on the same island or that would have been pretty beast.
Like others have said and will say, you are amazing. :)"

"I've wanted to write this testimonial for a long time, but for some reason I wanted to save it for today, the final day of your 365. Makena, you are truly inspirational. I've enjoyed following your 365 and seeing you grow as a photographer so much. Your photos are always so, so beautiful! You use light so well, and you always shoot in the most amazing locations! Have I ever mentioned that I am insanely jealous that you live in Hawaii? The dedication and love you have for photography is so apparent, and you already seem like a professional photographer. Its so impressive that you are always taking photos for the newspaper and things, and that you did that internship with a professional photographer! Seriously you are amazing, and I'm so glad that I've gotten to know you on flickr. Congratulations on finishing your 365!"
