Wonder Woman & Her Apprentice
Updated: Jul 9, 2021
On May 3rd, I published a blog post highlighting the photoshoot we did with Columbia Heights Mayor Amáda Simula Marquez dressed as Wonder Woman. The purpose of the shoot was to have some pictures to gift young Haley who had just gone into remission after three years of fighting cancer. When Haley began her journey, the hospital staff began to call her "Wonder Woman" because she was so brave. When Haley saw Amáda dressed as Wonder Woman in a Pride parade recently, the bond was made.
Yesterday, Amáda, Haley, Haley's aunt & cousin, and I went on a tour of Columbia Heights so that Haley could begin her apprentice training as Wonder Woman. Scroll through this long blog post and enjoy the deep joy that we all experienced yesterday with Mayor Amáda and Wonder-Woman-in-Training Haley. We began by exploring Kordiak Park, meeting the locals. Then we headed to the 49th St bridge, then to the fire station. After that, we popped in to the theater, library, and finally... DAIRY QUEEN!
