"I strive to connect with people through creative ventures."
"Hi! I'm Reyna,
I've known that fact and proudly claimed it since I was a shy quiet girl growing up in Fargo, North Dakota.
Drawing, painting, writing, capturing photos, making funny home videos, practicing a solo for choir, plunking keys on the piano or playing a new tune on my viola... it was evident from an early age that I loved to create and to use those creative outlets to relate with the world. As a little girl, I was introverted and shy; and while creating was my escape, it was also the means of how I connected with those around me which gave me confidence and eventually brought me out of my shell.
I feel grateful to have worked jobs that have allowed me to flex my creative muscles. As I've grown from the young girl who feared public speaking to a woman who has proudly competed on the Miss America stage, I've realized that photography has become my favorite outlet because it allows me to create art while connecting with the world around me.
