Giavanna's Senior Session

Meet Giavanna, aka Gia. She is the baby in the family with four older siblings. Giavanna's sr session, well part one, was shot at the beautiful University of California, Davis Arboretum. We will be heading to San Fransisco to finish her senior session once COVID19 is over and we can resume business.

Giavanna will be graduating from  Elise P. Buckingham Charter Magnet High School and will be heading to one of these colleges, Prairie View A&M University, Cal State Fullerton, or San Jose State to start her journey to becoming a physician! You are seeing that correctly. This young lady has some big dreams and if anyone can do it, she can! She is an amazing leader and headed the first Black Student Union at her high school. She enjoyed bringing everyone together and seeing everyone be united in one common goal. Gia really enjoyed getting up to go to school and really looked forward to being a part of the "Student Leadership" program. She enjoys planning and watching everyone enjoy the events they planned. She must have really loved it, as it required her to be at school an hour early every day! Good thing Starbuck's is open early so she could grab her favorite beverage, Iced Caramel Macchiato w/almond milk and extra caramel, before getting to school. In addition to the Student Leadership she also has been in choir for four years, and advanced choir for three, participated in theatrical drama productions. During the summer of sophomore year she attended Northbay's Nurse Camp, and during the summer of junior year she participated in the Stanford Medical Youth Science Program. Senior year she was busy with Varsity Softball, started a dance club with a few friends, and aided in starting the school's first Black Student Union.

This busy young lady did not let COVID19 get her down or slow her down. She picked up some new hobbies, master baking, learning to play the piano by herself. She is also staying on top of my school work, face-timing friends, spending time with my family, and playing games on her xbox/computer. She stays motivated by listening to some of her favorite music, Brown Skin Girl - Beyonce, Butterflies - Queen Naija, I Do - Divine Lightbody to name a few.

I am so blessed that her mother found me on Google. Giavanna and her mom are some of the sweetest and most thoughtful ladies you will meet. Keep your eye out for part 2 of Gia's session that will be shot in San Fransisco!
