This is how I see Keziah Khoo. She is always having fun and making lots of friends all over the world.

Here she is with the her new friends in Bucharest, Romania. I first met Keziah back in February 2014 at the School of Photography 1 class at the Youth With A Mission campus in Kona, Hawaii. She went with a group before the class started that I was teaching on an around the Island tour.

Even the horses like posing with Keziah. As you can see Keziah is all about everyone having fun, so I wasn’t surprised when she chose to do a story on camps in Romania.

Here is her finished package.

Throughout the process Keziah would get tips from the leaders.

He also has a passion to invest in others with creative skills and to create an avenue for them to serve the Lord in missions.

We drove as a group out to Herăști, Giurgiu, Romania, which is a small village outside of Bucharest about an hour by car. Here Keziah is making a photo of some of the local guys.

So what did Keziah think of the experience:

The teaching was really good and covered everything I needed to know about creating a multimedia piece.

When she was asked to list 2 or 3 of the most important things you learned. She said this:

Patience – When technical stuff went wrong

Focus – in pushing through, finishing the edits no matter how frustrating it was

Flexibility – plans

It has been fun watching Keziah grow in her skills. She has also taught me how valuable it is to have photos of yourself with those you meet along your journey.
