17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Meeting a role model for the first time.

Shea was adopted from China and could not speak a single language at age 3. Even though her speech still comes very hard for her, she is able to capture people's hearts and has made lifelong connections, as shown in this photo. I captured this image at DisneyWorld, as Shea met her role model, Princess Mulan, for the first time.
