Dreams are the motivating factors to success. It’s very hard to realize our dreams at a very young age. If we succeed to interpret our dreams and work hard to materialize it, it is sure that God and destiny will help us to accomplish it.
Here we have the life of an inspiring photographer who works hard to achieve her goals. She is Naomi Franchelle Rodrigues who is also known as Fabfranchelle in the Fashion industry.
Naomi is a passionate photographer who wants to explore the world with her camera. Like every kid, in the beginning Naomi also had no clue of what she wanted to become but the only thing she knew was that she wanted to own a camera. She realized it first when she attendedthe annual day during her 12th. Later, upon request her mom handed her an old film camera that was lying in the cupboard. After that her parents gifted hera point and shoot camera which she lost during her cousin’s marriage, along with a ton of pictures.But that didn’t deter her away from Photography. Her interest increased since then. After that she owned a bridge Sony camera.
