Gomathi approaches life with curiosity and a sense of humor. Despite losing her parents, she handles her own illness with perseverance. She outshines her physical differences with her ability to make others laugh. Sounds of her delight echo throughout campus as she jokes with the other children at the Russ Foundation Home. She is always observing and asking questions, showing great interest in what is going on around her. Gomathi's photos reflect this curiosity for the world. Like a professional street photographer, her compositions exude a sense of dynamic energy.
