National Women's Day

Every year on Women's Day Western Michigan University holds a women's only immigration ceremony. This beautiful event honors women who have come to the US and worked hard to gain one of the most coveted honors, United States citizenship. Being in that room and able to capture this event is indescribable, seeing and feeling the emotions. As a born American citizen I really can't even begin to imagine what these women have been through. Some have been through war, many have lost everything but all have gained a new start. Please enjoy the following series of images.
