What makes Daryl the best candidate for this Award?

My name is Daryl Anassi, I was born in Ivory Coast West Africa. I Moved to the United States on February 02nd of 2009. Growing up I never though of doing Photography. It was a Vision that turned today into a Passion. Now today, I can go a day without thinking about my Passion. It all started, about 4 years ago when one day I cried out to God because I was tired of living paycheck to paycheck and asked him to give a vision. So one night, He revealed that vision to me in my dream. He told me to go on Google and look for easy business to own and I did like He asked me to. First thing that showed on my search was photography. While reading through the search, the minimum expense required to start was about $5k but you can start by investing about $1k to begin with. When I heard about the amounts I almost gave up because I didn't have that kind of money, but as believer I have to test my Faith. I got paid the following Friday, took my Paycheck to Target just to buy a camera. I knew I have bills to pay like car note, insurance, rent, credit cards but I decided to go ahead and buy the camera without looking back. I was scared to not be able to make it but as my God said " You look too much into your hurt so you lost sight of Me". So I that time I fully trusted him to show me the way and lead me to that vision. As of today I am a living testimony of His Faithfulness. I met an amazing mentor, Eveliz Tomety who never stoped to push me to live my passion. Because I am living that passion, I have met some wonderful and amazing people.

My passion for Photography took me places I would never imagine of. Every time I shoot, I believe in one thing " To Make Memories" because for me it is not just about taking the pictures but more of making a fun time with my customers so when they look at the pictures they will remember forever the good time we had while shooting. Getting this award will show that the hard work, the dedication, the passion I put into that new journey of Photography finally paid off. It was a meltdown and joy to my heart when I saw that I was nominated. I believe and trust that one day a piece of my work will be in a place where I never believe to be.
