The encouragement and social skills acquired through a solid network of friends teaches young people how to act in social situations, which sets them up well for adulthood. Having positive friends in a teen's life can also provide feedback when an individual makes a bad decision in life. 'NW5' is a personal project exploring identity and documenting those who played positive influential roles in the photographers' youthful and formative years. Not only does it look at the topic of identity but is also a body of work that aims to pay homage to the individuals who have been a constant supportive network during the challenges and successes faced by the photographer.
