San Japan is San Antonio’s largest and longest running anime con. People from near and far come to the Alamo City to show their love for anime, video games and everything geeky. With over 18,000 in attendance, San Japan 8 was the largest to date.
It was in my freshman year of high school that I discovered a love for photography and fell in love with the telling of true stories. I became assistant editor of the school’s yearbook and photo editor of the newspaper. I spent my free time and summers taking part in the San Antonio Express-News Teen Team and attending the two-week long Urban Journalism Workshop at San Antonio College. Now that I attend Texas A&M-San Antonio, I feel that I’ve found an institution where I can enjoy a great education within my field which will help me reach my artistic and professional goals.
