MAPS College
Humans of MAPS - Aminath Husna

Anxiety is a terrible thing; something our culture is not yet ready to discuss. This island nation undermines the crippling power of certain mental afflictions. “It’s not a big deal” they say. So tell me, what is considered a “big deal” anyway? Isn’t it a big deal that I cannot hold interest to finish a course? Isnt it a big deal that I have to go through five courses in different colleges, before I could get the academic support I needed? Isn’t it a big deal to feel worried about taking a picture to put a face behind the voice that is trying to say this? It is a big deal, one that requires tremendous effort to fight. I am constantly battling this crippling force and I take it very seriously. I do what I must to make sure I am happy. Photography is one of those things and it eases my mind; it keeps me occupied and takes me to a world of relaxation. Beautiful oceans, splendid trees and wonderful scenes everywhere to be captured. These moments and images, they help me find comfort at times that are just impossible. I have been involved with photography ever since I was 15. I taught myself to take pictures and edit them which I am extremely proud of.

I work two jobs; it is stressful as it is even without this anxiety. Though my anxiety has been painted as a shortcoming, I don’t want it to describe me. I am a determined woman, who aims to inspire and seek brilliance. I want to own a guest house and run a photography career of my own. A dream which I will chase vigorously, with virtue, regardless of what the future holds for me, and to be honest it was never easy. However; I get along with a bit of help from people. MAPS has shown me support to brave my inclinations. If such support continues in all facets of my life; there will be nothing that I cannot brave and hopefully it would serve as a beacon for those who also feel that their thoughts and feelings are not taken seriously.
