Lily Clarke ’16 is a religious studies major who is pursuing minors in creative writing and biology.

She captured this picture of her cousins several years ago when taking them out for ice cream in Fairview, N.C.

“It’s been fun seeing them grow up, and documenting our time together always captures moments that are more telling of childhood and of life than I realize when I am originally taking the picture,” she said.

Her photo was featured in the spring 2015 issue of the undergraduate literary magazine Cellar Door.
