Season 1


Like many, Quang Le was never able to articulate his feelings of social anxiety to those around him. Instead, he learned to embrace those feelings and use his photography as a creative outlet for that energy – Quang feels that this sort of energy is what helps make some art so unique. The biggest regret Quang has had in his life was trying to “fit in” with everyone else. Never sacrifice or repress what makes you different just to fit in. Be unique. Take pride in who you are and what you love.
