Alexandra Greenberg was born October 23rd, 1999 in North Vancouver. She considers herself both Canadian and Filipino, as she has family in the Philippines. Alexandra has visited family there three times and feels a definite connection to that culture. Her interest in photography has been growing for a few years now; she recently began taking photos for her high school yearbook. Here are some of her current snaps, taken with a Nikon D5200.
“I’m just a very casual teenage girl, so I don’t really consider myself fully Filipino but yeah, that’s one way that I look at myself. I am funny, I am very silly sometimes, and I can get pretty hyper. I’m also very adventurous; I like to go on hikes; I like to travel, so I like to see new things. I like to explore.
I’m working on photography. I don’t know if I want to pursue photography yet; I’m still deciding which career I want to do. There are so many options and there are so many opportunities here. But I like to take photos of nature, flowers, housing, real estate, cities, people too. I like outdoor photography because I get to connect with people and nature at the same time. Photography is inspiring because every time you capture a photo, let’s say you’re capturing photos of something you did, like you go on a trip or you went to a festival or you went to the mountain to ski, that’s a memory. That’s kept in you, and you can show it to your friends and family. What you did over the years is right there.”
