In the state of West Virginia lives one of clay’s PR Photographers for the 2020-2021 school year. Meet Megan Good, a 14-year-old student who will start her 3rd year of TPS in the fall. Not only does she excel in photography, but she also enjoys drawing, playing the violin, reading, and exploring and learning about nature.
Because one of her older brothers also practices photography, Megan has been fiddling around with cameras since she was a young girl; however, she officially began photography about a year ago. Her favorite style of photography is macro, which explains why she often snaps pictures of insects and nature. Opening up a little more, she shares one of her favorite memories of photography—taking photos of a fawn and a deer up close for the first time. Amusingly, she almost stepped on the fawn curled up and hidden by the tall, lush grass near the lake.
Trying to get to know a bit more about her personality, I asked her, “What’s the first thing you would do if money grew on trees?”
Unexpectedly, she gave me quite a literal answer, “I would probably get some money off the trees to get a nice stash, enough to buy a new camera, and then I’d try to find out why the trees are mutating to keep global inflation from taking over the world.”
An ordinary week in Megan’s life often includes school, violin lessons, playing games and music with her family, hanging out with friends, and going to youth events in her church. Her ideal day would preferably include doing a project at home, reading, drinking tea, relaxing in the morning, and then hanging out someplace awesome with friends in the evening. One fun fact about Megan is that while she has trimmed her hair before, she has never cut it. Surprisingly, the length of her hair is only a little over a foot long.
Her favorite books include The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Lord of the Rings, and Little Women. She loves her mom’s bread, and her favorite color has been green for the longest time. The hymn that has comforted her through thick and thin is “The Love of God.” Megan concludes with her favorite Bible passage, Proverbs 3:5-6 , which reads“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” When I asked her why she chose these, she gave me a simple explanation: “because it reassures me that I don’t have to know everything and that I can trust God with my life.”
All in all, Megan cannot wait to work for clay this year as she helps the magazine create picture content and improves her photography skills. Please look forward to seeing her stunning photos appearing on clay’s social media pages!
