Project Description


Joyanne Panton

At age 5, Joyanne Panton asked her parents, "Where are the pictures of me?" The family album was filled with adorable pictures of her sister and brother but there were none of her because her family couldn't afford them. Oddly enough, Joyanne developed a big interest in photography and would later take many pictures on a film camera but never develop the photos. In 2008, Joyanne arrived in the beautiful country of the United States of America. Coming from an impoverished country, she was amazed at the opportunities available to her. Joyanne asked for a camera every Christmas and birthday. At age 16, Joyanne attempted to start a photography business but quickly failed. Things were different when she tried again at age 19, and in just one short year she was able to go full-time and garner attention all over the world. Joyanne's ultimate goals as a woman is to uplift others. She prays that her life, words, and heart will inspire others to be the very best the can possibly be.
