Carra Palmer is a 21 year old Entrepreneur that loves photography and art. She started WASTED (We Are Standing Together Every Day) at the age of 15 with hopes to increase unity and acceptance. Carra has always been a person that loves everyone. She is the person who befriended the kids in school that were picked on. As young as 6 her mother recalls her asking questions about discrimination and unfair business practices. Her desire is to spread unity and allow people to see that even when you see the word WASTED, you automatically think negative. But just like judging people by their appearance, when you really look past what you see and find out the inner workings, you will see that there is more to it than what's on the surface.
We Are Standing Together Every Day is not just a phrase, but an opportunity for all to see that there is always someone standing with you.
During her photography shoots, she and her family discovered there are other new ways to capture the fun and memories of events. Therefore the Photobooth was the next natural addition. Although she is a full time student majoring in photographic art, being an entrepreneur is an avenue that she has always wanted to pursue. Upon graduation, she would love to work as a sports photographer while also doing studio and other family and event shoots.
