My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited - Visiting "Tanti Joana"

My name is Bettina Theuerkauf, I am 23 years old and studying media technology in Germany. It was due to my courses that I bought my first camera and since than I stuck with the subject. For me, photography is more than just taking pictures; it is the possibility to tell stories, stories that have to be told in order to inform, to change something in myself as well as the people surrounding me. I think that every person, and even nature with its unpredictability, can teach you something, no matter what country, what age, which life story, which social class, which culture he or she belongs to or had. Photography is teaching me as a human being interacting with my surroundings, giving me the opportunity to reflect upon it and giving me the chance to share those experiences with others. My studies in Germany are nearly finished and I now have to start thinking about the period after that. This scholarship would give me the chance of not only learning a lot about the work of a professional photojournalist but also of taking my first step into the business. So, why should you take me? Because I would with absolute certainty appreciate if such a unique opportunity would be given to me and put as much effort into it as possible. I am eager to learn, determined and stubborn when it comes to reaching the goals I set for myself, reliable, open minded and least but not last totally passionate about photography.
