Kris ig: @kristina_nicolina Kristina went to Penn State University with no clear idea for a major. A close friend noticed her penchant and love for helping children and suggested a career in education. At first, it was a thrilling career, shaping little minds into future learners and leaders, but soon that became too much like "a job.” After taking a much-needed break, Kristina rediscovered a passion she has held since her teenage years. She once again picked up a camera and spent countless hours capturing and editing thousands of images in order to hone her craft. She was rewarded for her hard work with a solo photography exhibit in her home town. Her exhibit sparked a flame inside her that still burns to this day. The burning for the perfect shot. The striving for the perfect composition. Kristina believes that she has yet to take her best image, and it is this desire that fuels her ambition for perfection in every frame she shoots.

Tori Tori is a poet, photographer, and editor. Tori discovered her love of poetry by accident. She had no idea that poetry would soon become her lifesaver. Her means of communication, of understanding. At first, that was all poetry really was for Tori. It wasn’t until college that she really started to develop her love and skill for the written word. After taking many poetry workshops with a professor who would soon become her mentor, she realized that poetry wasn’t just a passion, it was what she was meant to do.
