A large tattoo of an antique camera adorns the left shoulder of Taelor Kristine Sanders. It reflects her love of photography, a hobby that allows her to show her individuality through each picture.
“No two photographs are exactly the same,” Sanders said. “Each one is one-of-a-kind, just like me.”
The Oklahoma native is the senior yearbook editor at Westmoore High School in Moore, Okla., a suburb just south of Oklahoma City.
Despite her passion for photography, the 16-year-old aspires to be a respiratory therapist. She has a genuine interest in the anatomy and physiology of the lungs.
After she lost her grandfather to lung cancer, she decided to enter the medical field to help people suffering from respiratory problems.
“I just really want to help people,” said Sanders, who is shy around strangers but warms up quickly. “Making people smile brings a smile to my face.”
