We're all taught at a very young age that great results come from hard work and perseverance. Athleticism has always fascinated me, and it’s safe to say that most of America feels this way, too. We spend hours of our Saturdays glued to the TV watching football games. We stay up late if our teams are playing in different time zones. Sports culture is enormous in the United States, and this rings especially true at the University of Michigan.

On March 14, I photographed The Flaming Lips at the Royal Oak Music Theatre. Their performance was an incredible experience of sound and color. Music filled the theatre for over two hours,  opening with the energetic “Race for the Prize” and ending with the heartfelt “Do You Realize??” After two encores, the Flaming Lips played a beautiful concert I would highly recommend to anyone.

Chicago music duo Louis the Child's performance at Royal Oak Music Theatre was phenomenal. In 2015, the pair performed at the same venue as an opener for the EDM artist Madeon. Now, their rise to fame has allowed them to perform their own headlining shows. The concert included jaw dropping live versions of their singles "Weekend" and "Fire,” a short vignette of Snoop Dogg's "Smoke Weed Everyday,” and an encore featuring "It's Strange" with incredible visuals.

The Palace of Auburn Hills filled with energy and excitement on Friday night as the Lumineers brought their Cleopatra world tour to Michigan. The arena changed dramatically during the two hours since the doors were open- every seat was filled, the general admission pit was congested with people and the anticipatory energy was palpable.

As a photojournalist, my job is to take experiences that I see through my viewfinder and present them to our readers in an unbiased fashion. Through my experience, I’ve captured the raw emotions and passions that people have for this school and its teams. The genuine passion, heartbreak and cheers from fans, along with players’ intricate athleticism, have allowed me to understand in a small sense the immense pride that these Michigan fans display. It’s even made me reflect on one of my own passions as well: the practice of photography.

My second costume was an impromptu decision because someone was selling a halo on the Ladies of U of M Facebook page. My friend and I did a devil/ angel combined costume. This was probably one of my best Halloweens because of how easy it was to make costumes.

"The last time I felt most proud would probably be about a month ago, when a patient that I was working with in the hospital for over a month, stood up and walked for the first time in 3 years. I was so proud of my patient for having the courage to get up and walk again. I felt proud and humble that I was able to be there to be apart of this amazing milestone for him and be able to see the joy that radiated from his face. It made me radiate with joy."

“I think it's important to register to vote because the whole point of American Democracy is to put in your two cents and to let everybody know you took a part of the history of America. I’m a social studies major so my emphasis is on the creation of America… It’s important to get your say out there because so many people fought for your right to do this, and so many people wish they had the right to do this.”
