Rosie Linares is a third year student at San Francisco State University majoring in journalism with an emphasis in photojournalism. Since she was a young child living in Belmont, CA, 20 miles south of San Francisco, Linares has shown interested in photography. Throughout her high school years at Carlmont High School, Linares took various photography courses from different institutions including the near-by junior college, College of San Mateo, and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. In her later years at college, she came to discover her hidden love for writing and language. Photojournalism for Linares is a mixture of two things she is passionate about: photography and writing. Photography allows her to capture unique moments of life, while writing allows Linares to explain that unique moment in detail. She hopes that through photojournalism she may express her interests for photography and writing while traveling the world. Linares also hopes that through traveling she can gain a broader understanding of the world and the different people, cultures, and ideas within it. Ultimately, Linares aspires to impact people and insight change through the most influential outlet—the media. When she isn’t snapping away with her camera, Linares enjoys reading, admiring art in museums, lying on grass in nearby parks, hiking on nature trails, and cuddling with her 10 lbs. Chihuahua/Doberman, Charlie.
