FEATURE PHOTO 12/09/14: FALLING FOR FALL CONTEST, 1ST PLACE

Falling Fall 1

Colours of Fall

Photo by Auriza Ugalino

We’re proud to present the winner of our 2014 Falling for Fall Photo Contest. Claiming first place is first year JET, Auriza Ugalino. Auriza captured this breathtaking photo on Miyajima whilst on an outing with friends. Although fall is her favourite season, she admits that this year has been hard with homesickness beginning to set in. Aspiring to capture all the colours of fall in one photo, Auriza’s friends helped her find the leaves for this photo.  It is more than a representation of autumn to her, but of the importance of friendship as well. Said in Auriza’s own words, “It’s important to remember that when you’re alone, there will always be people who can help.” Congratulations Auriza and thank you for your entry.
