Each student was surprised with their own digital camera then challenged to share their hopes and dreams through photography. “Often it’s difficult to share verbally something that’s deep within. But through an art form, through photography, you can open your heart and share those feelings, share what you want in life, what is your hope,” said Linda Solomon, Pictures of Hope.

The program goes to schools across the nation.
