One thing that helped her get through the difficult time was learning photography through Pablove Shutterbugs. She was partnered with an instructor who visits ill children at their homes or at a hospital. Children also attend a weeklong workshop to perfect their photography skills. Juanita graduated from the program last summer.
Thanks to the program, Juanita was able to go to the Golden Globes as the youngest credentialed photographer, but instead of taking photos of the stars, she took photos with them. She posed with celebrities like Amy Adams, Goldie Hawn and Kerry Washington at the big event.
