I'm constantly thankful for my education and for the opportunities that UC Davis has given me to grow as an academic and as a person. I chose to photograph Hart Hall because it is the departmental home of one of my majors, Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies. I'm constantly thankful for the opportunities I have had to expand and apply my education, and I hope to continue to grow and learn more and more. (BECCA RIDGE)
