1. What is something not too many people know about you?
Born in California, I have lived in 7 states and now currently reside in Oahu, Hawaii. I have never really felt happy anywhere until here. I moved on my own without knowing anyone or anything. I had never even visited any of the Hawaiian islands until I moved here, and it is by far one of the best decisions I made for myself. I had some rough childhood experiences such as living in a household involving drugs, as well as some bad bullying until my junior year of high school. Most people know me for my passion for photography. While it is at the top of my list, something a lot of people don’t know about me is I really enjoy writing poetry. I started in middle school and my love for it has only intensified since moving to Hawaii. Writing has been a huge outlet for me. It's helped me to overcome some pretty tough times as well as gain some self confidence, and it wasn’t until recently that I started to share some of my work on my Instagram page. (@rebecca.cerrone) I have received some of the most heart warming messages of support and it’s very touching to see people relate to my words that reach out.
2. What are your biggest passions or hobbies?
My biggest passions would be my photography and writing. Besides them I love dancing, traveling, learning about animals, being outdoors, and cooking! I also have an obsession for all kinds of music! I choose listening to music over the tv any day.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I don’t think too far ahead in the future typically, but a goal I would hope to achieve is to hopefully one day be able to travel the world more as I’ve never been out of the US yet. I also want to photograph my experiences and continue expanding my photography. Finally, I want to hopefully one day publish my poetry!
4. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is being happy with myself. I’m not one for needing a bunch of materialistic things. Really, I just want to be able to say that I am proud of myself and happy with what I do have and where life takes me.
5. Tell us something about the project you're currently working on.
Alongside my photography, which I am always learning and expanding, I am actually currently working on the goal of my own poetry book! I really hope to have it near done if not published by the end of 2018!
