Please click and drag the white arrows to see my underwater transformation.
My name is N. Saraf and I’m 42 years old.
I live in San Jose, CA and I’m originally from Tehran, Iran.
I was diagnosed stage 0 breast cancer last year and I feel lucky to find out at a very early stage.
I wanted to be involved in the underwater healing project to remember that I should enjoy life to the fullest because it is pure and beautiful.
During the underwater portrait session, I felt like a little mermaid, and all I could think about while posing underwater was the following quote from Option B book by Sheryl Sandberg: “Option A is not available. so let’s just kick the shit out of Option B.”
I recommend this underwater healing photography for other survivors and warriors because this experience was as unique as your emotional scars. And you learn something new about yourself from the pure water.
And working with Erena was so easy and fun!
