Through Our Eyes – Week 19

Each Wednesday, WKU’s Student Chapter of NPPA brings you the best images of the past week taken by our very own students. To submit, you must currently be a WKU Photojournalism student and have taken the images or produced the video in the last week (Monday to Monday). Send your top 5 choices to wkunppa@gmail.com and our officers will pick the best of the bunch to showcase.

Week1903Carol Greer assists her daughter, Ginna Greer, while preparing for bed. At two weeks old, Ginna had a stroke that caused her to be diagnosed as developmentally delayed with a vision impairment. Now, at age 19, Ginna calls for extra attention to complete certain tasks. Carol said, “It’s just life; it’s just what you have to do. You put one foot in front of the other and do your thing. Sometimes, I get a little overwhelmed by her extra needs because I know at age 19 she’s supposed to be taking care of herself and some nights I don’t feel like getting up and helping her take a shower, but she brings a lot of joy to our lives so that’s what I have to think about.”
