I hope the program continues! The explosion of smartphone cameras really means more photos than ever. People need some skills, but that's for another discussion! - Sid R, webmaster, Best Digital Camera
Is there going to be another soar scholarship for 2013? A friend saw Ma Ra at her local church and knows of my struggles and dreams of someday owning a photography business of my own and felt that this was something she needed me to check into. Thanks so much any info would greatly be appreciated! I would love to apply for such a wonderful opportunity!
This is awesome. I'm a professional and I have a client who would be perfect for this opportunity! I have given her your web site information and maybe this will be something that she can do the next time around. (I didn't see a date for the competition anywhere)
wow this looks AMAZING! I'm still reading over everything and loved watching some of the movies. Is there going to be a Soar scholarship again next year? (winter of 2011-2012) I want to apply and get this so bad! It would be an amazing experince that is much needed! Thanks for doing such a great thing Me Ra Koh!
Who's got a great dream for a business you want to grow? We are so excited to be working with the next SOAR! recipients as coaches - helping you, and the entire community, learn how to build your businesses. And, BTW, this is YOUR business - so we'll be working with you to build one that really uses your strengths and shores up your weaknesses. Are you ready?
I just realized my video is too long and I am disqualified...I can't sleep because my company left home into dangerous weather conditions and I haven't heard from them. I wish I had known about this scholarship with more notice but I guess it's time to work hard on my own...:(
The Soar Scholarship that was born in the heart of Mera last year was a life line for me this last year. Like many of you my life took unplanned turns throughout the year, but it was so fun to wake up and see what the Soar Sisters were up too each day. Their kindness to share knowledge, mistakes, ideas, and creativity astounded me. The Soar Program reached far more than three recipients this year, it reached hundreds of us, teaching, coaching, and encouraging us to dream a dream and to walk forward a day at a time to reach that dream. It also reached into our artistic hearts and more importantly it created friendships that I am so grateful for and with women I have never even met. I don't know what I would do if photography was not in my life, but the relationships that have been developed on this site has made photography for me more meaningful. I thank Mera, Brian, and the whole team, Genie, Fay, Karen, Sony, Sponsors, for investing in so many women's lives, especially mine. I SUPPORT SOAR!!!!!!
About to enter my video! I'm a little nervous but more excited about the possibility! I'm not a mom, but I am so desperate for this... it couldn't come at a better time. I was inspired by all of your comments and Me Ra's blog to go for it this year and this would just be icing on the cake. I need the education/mentorship/equipment, as I'm sure we'd all like to have. Thanks for your encouragement everyone, and good luck to all :)
Ah, to enter or not to enter? I just found out that I'm pregnant with our first. So I think this year I'll just follow along with fellow soar sisters. My dream is to be a momma with a camera and a vision, Lol. Maybe over this next year I'll be able to fully develope and grow that vision into a reality. :)
