Pa Yong Xiong (right) likes to call herself an undercover weirdo. She is a graduate of Gordon Parks High School. When she’s not in school, she likes to daydream about escaping from all the peas in the same ol’ boring pod and into a fruit bowl of colors. But for now she enjoys the thrill of singing to her unbelievably great audience, shampoo and conditioner, and, most of all, hearing the click of the shutters in her banged-up Canon camera. Hungry to learn more about photography, she jumps at every opportunity she gets to expand her knowledge of this art form, so that one day everyone can see beauty in everything, as she does.
