Stranger 53/100 - Bre

Stranger 53/100 - Bre

 

What brings you to uptown? “Homework.”

 

Meet Bre.

 

“I have to write some reports on like International stuff, so I’m going to the Mint Museum. There’s a photography exhibit from Mexican artists. Just something local that I didn’t have to spend money for.”

 

What are you studying in school? “Accounting… nothing fun. I’m good with budgets.”

 

What do you do for fun? “I write… fiction and fan fiction.”

 

What genres do you like? “For fan fiction, I’m doing a lot of Sherlock right now.”

 

What advice would you give to your younger self? “Don’t be so afraid. It’s something I’m learning right now.”

 

What is your biggest challenge? “My anxiety… just being out, talking to people, doing stuff.”

 

What would you do if you had a million dollars? “Travel.”

 

Do you have a place in mind? “No, I just want to backpack. But, I want to be brave enough to backpack.”

 

How would your friends describe you? “A laugher I guess. I laugh a lot. I like to make people laugh if I can.”

 

If you could put up a billboard, what would it say? “To thine own self be true. Just be yourself, and if that’s hard then learn to make it easy I guess. Love yourself.”

 

Do you follow that rule? “I try. I’m learning to right now. That’s what my playlist is… female singers who are all about loving themselves.”

 

Technical Notes: This photo was taken in an open alleyway in front of a dark window. Bre kindly helped me hold a reflector to brighten up her face.
