I met Kristine, the 25 year old Wisconsin native, through a close friend of the Photographers on the ship. Kristine is a Youth Counselor on board Pride of America and all the YC's (as they are called) have nicknames. Ostensibly to make them more relatable to the youths that they counsel. Hence: Skittles.
I was excited to get Kristine's portrait because after a few conversations we found that there was very little that we agreed upon; except that we liked one another. I have the utmost respect for her. In fact perhaps more so than some people with whom I share many beliefs. In the course of our debates Kristine stood in there against what might be deemed: relentless questioning, and acknowledges contradictions. She doesn't pretend to know anything she doesn't know. She stands by her beliefs with faith, humor, and remains open to hearing my viewpoint. I respect and admire that. Here is her portrait.
