Karina Dachauer, Photographer

My name is Karina Dachauer and I'm a Senior at FHS. I was born in Pennsylvania, live in Arkansas, and dream of traveling the world. I'm fortunate enough to have always been encouraged to pursue a career doing what I love; and because of that, I've been doing photography for over 5 years. I love writing, filmmaking, and other forms of art, but photography is by far my favorite.
