Trista McGovern | Photo Essay
By showing a few behind-the-scenes parts of my life, I want to promote understanding of what others may not know as well as provide a reminder that everyone has a story that we may not know everything about. I used to think that it was more mature to keep things to myself, especially since I am capable of dealing with whatever I have to deal with on my own. I never really put into consideration the effect of keeping all my differences or hardships to myself could have on others, and it started to change the way I thought about not sharing the parts of my life that most didn't see. I decided to share my differences/adversity with others in hopes that people will be more open themselves, as well as be more open minded about others - no matter what the situation.
I try to show that with any situation, the most important thing is to be positive with it all.
