Dheya originally is a small town type a gal. With her move in 2015 her life has taken on a new challenge at Miami Arts Charter! Where students have been tasked to do the 365 self portrait challenge. She is inspired by her families flaws, and motivates her to put her all into her photos. She likes to convey raw feeling and emotion in her photos. She is more oganic and is in love with b&w photos along with silent films. Have a ball keeping up with her.
