Shanna Dunlap
Hi, my name is Shanna Dunlap and I am a senior at Southern High School in Harwood, Maryland. I am a photographer who specializes in people, mainly childrens portraits. I started with photography when I was in sixth grade and haven’t stopped since. I plan on going to college for art and majoring in photography. It’s my passion. I have a GPA of 4.06 and I’m ranked 23 out of 250 in my state. I also dance for Southern High School’s Repertory dance company and have been a part of many companies my whole life. I have accomplished many things through art including many Scholastic Art awards, auctioning off work, and as this year’s 2015 NAEA National Rising Star Award Recipient. I hope you enjoy reading my blog for the month of April!
