17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People

Vedasto R. Santiago High School conducted a share - a - joy project last December 10, 2018. During the conduct of the project, I took this photo remembrance of these two kids. "Happiness!" Even if they live in a house built with Nipa Hut called "Kubo" in the Philippines, no fancy things, no expensive clothes, and having no enough food on the table each day, I saw genuine smiles on their faces. Poverty is really just a status - it doesn't make you less of a person and it doesn't limit your happiness.
