A couple nights ago, I was busy working and as I was leaving Kinkos at Sunset and Vine, I was approached by this young woman who wanted to show me her art.  By approached, I mean she said hello and when I responded with hello and kept on walking, she took off to walk beside me, just as quickly and brisk as I, to have this conversation.   She went on to tell me that she had applied to the California Institute of the Arts(CalArts), and was working on selling some of her art to raise tuition.  Her drive and passion really inspired me so I pulled out my camera and got to know her a little better.  Thanks Shannon!
