Photo assignments involving kids are always a fun experience.
Children don’t think twice about how they look, are eager to get their picture taken and can’t wait to tell you everything they know about everything.
On a recent trip to Kelleys Island with schools reporter Alissa Widman, I met the island’s lone preschool student, Viktoriya Skeans.
Every time I brought my camera to my eye, the 4-year-old would pose like a ballerina.
“I’m a movie star,” she told me. Though she couldn’t name any movies she’s appeared in, Viktoriya is somewhat of a celebrity on the island. Many community members know her by name. The tiny islander’s perfect poses didn’t make the final edit for Widman’s story, but I think they deserved their own spotlight in today’s paper.
