Aproximately 1 year ago, Kauã began to pursue his professional career. To help his mother with the household bills, he became an audiovisual apprentice at the Ramacrisna Institute.
Early on, the boy didn’t really know what profession he wanted to pursue in the future. Everything started to change when he discovered his love for the photographic lens.
Kauã says that, based on Professor Nezir’s teachings, he realized how he could tell stories and show his worldview through photographs.
“I became more interested in video when Professor Nezir arrived. He encouraged me and believed in my potential. If today I work as a professional photographer, I owe him a lot”, he adds.
Nezir invited Kauã to accompany him to events, working as a photographic assistant. Thus, the teenager had contact with the profession in practice and never stopped. Soon after, he began to do several essays and also started his career as a freelancer.
One of the fundamental roles of Instituto Ramacrisna is to encourage children and teenagers to discover their talents. All our projects are focused so that students can learn, get involved and develop in a new profession.
In the case of Kauã, the support received at Ramacrisna was essential for him to start his professional journey.
In his words: “The Institute changed my life. There, I had many opportunities and experiences that contributed to my becoming a professional photographer”.
