Humans of Sacred Heart- Jackie Koletas '18


What was your reaction to winning the photography scholastic art award this week? Where were you when you found out? 
“I was attending rehearsal for the musical when somebody told me I had won. I could not believe that I was one of the winners picked and was very cheerful about the news. I immediately texted my cousin who is in the picture about my win.”
What is your piece about? When did you take it? Why did you take it?
“The photo is called ‘Walking the Dog.’ I took the photo a couple of years ago while exploring on a beach in Rhode Island. I was taking lots of photos and I loved how my cousin was looking at the camera. It made me feel like she is the staring viewer of the photo. I added it to my arrangement of photos on the beach and I’ve always had it saved on my computer. I’ve always wondered what to do with it so I decided to submit it to the scholastic awards.”
What is an interesting fact about you that no one knows? 
“I am one-sixteenth Native American.”
