What was the inspiration for creating your first zine?

Inspiration for my first zine came from the desperate need to express myself in the only way I knew how - photography and words. Making a zine isn’t just about putting my favorite photos or writing together, it’s an extension of how I’m feeling and what I’m currently going through. Completing a zine translates to completing a chapter in my life. Zines are therapy.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making zines?

Be yourself and don’t worry about what others think. Your zine should be a total representation of yourself and not what you think will appeal to the masses. Use your zine as a stepping stone, as therapy, and as way to express yourself. You’re all that matters. Have fun with it!
