Ananta

Meet the passionate Ananta.

Ananta is a multi-talented girl. She plays various instruments, does very well in school, dances folklore Indian, ballet and is socially very active for her age. There is much more to be said about her activities, interests and passions, but I leave that part for the magazines who already have interviewed her.

It has to be said that her lovely mother is her inspiration. She is the drive, the push, the voice which directs her to the limits of the sky..
Soon she will be off for study in the Netherlands. I wish her a save journey and good luck!

A promising young talent and hope one day she will make significant positive changes in Suriname for ALL its people and of course the world..

We're all proud of you Ananta, keep it up!

Back to portraits. this is simply stunning, There is no doubt, she is a violinist, and lost in the moment. It's a good capture.
Rafael Chan: Yes, portraits are interesting... how do you capture ones personality or at least a part of it smile Intriguing stuff if you think about it smile
Many thanks for your compliment Nathan grin

Outstanding capture of a very talented girl, I know for sure we will hear from her in Holland very soon, thanks you for sharing.
Rafael Chan: My pleasure Astrid smile I'm glad you like it so much! Dankjewel wink
Wow, can't wait for the magazine to come out...
On one hand it is a pity that it feels like so much of our young talent is leaving our country, luckily some come back, I am very glad to hear that Ananta plans to return to Suriname.
Rafael Chan: Yes, it is a pity. You can't blame them because education is not regarded as high priority by the government. Drastic, effective changes should be made to improve the education system, but no REAL action taken. People should realize that in education lies everything, every branche, everything we need to succeed as a nation.
Luckily out of sentiments for the beauty and the diversity of Suriname people do come back, they do return and they do contribute wink
Cheers grin
I really like her expression - she seems lost in her music.
Rafael Chan: Normally I have the radio turned on just for some background music and to let the models feel more at ease, because I can imagine a model going to a strange man's house, an unfamiliar invorement and not feeling relaxed. This time I just gave Ananta a guitar, and she played grin
Afterwards, she played the violin and it was just B_E_A_U_T_I_F_U_L smile smile
She really gets lost in her own music, it made my work so much more pleasurable. Thank you Jewlya for commenting!

I love the colors in this image, they are really rich and compliment her pretty skin tone.
Rafael Chan: I do agree with you that the tone of her skin and the tone of the violin compliment each other smile Thank you for visiting wink
