Hello, I’m Reema-Tanya, I am 21 years old. I am a 3rd year student studying Media Production (BA hons) at Southampton Solent University. I plan to graduate in the summer of 2019. Alongside doing my degree, I am also a photographer & videographer!
I am originally from London and my family home is in a town that’s a short journey away from the heart of London. I consider myself really lucky to have been brought up in a town that’s covered in countryside, but with a short journey I’m able to be in a famously beautiful city. I would say that this is what first inspired myself to get into photography. I wanted to be able to capture the amazing differences between a still, silent, countryside, as well as, a hectic, noisy, city life. I then moved to Southampton, to study my degree, which was a complete new experience to live on the coast, my life changed from being surrounded by airplanes, to boats. And I LOVE it.

I try my very best to help people that are suffering with mental health. After going through some of the hardest battles with my mental health, with some of those resulting in almost losing, I have come out fairly strong. I suffer/suffered with Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Disassociation and Self Harm. As well as struggling with these disorders, I have also had a fair share of heartbreaks and fall outs that I could argue but did and didn’t help me! Though I still have my bad days, I have so
many more good days and I want to help people get to the stage where I am today.
I think that’s all for a basic description of me, I hope you stick around to read other blog posts and learn more about my life journey!
