We had the good fortune of connecting with Raven Greene and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Raven, what makes you happy? Why?
What makes me happy is being able to create everyday. I love waking up doing what I love and learning new ways to be creative.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I’m proud that I never gave up even when I faced negativity from a lot of people. I grew up shy and used photography to help me get out of that shell. I always had a love for photography and creative art so I wanted to mix the two. It was definitely hard because I’m sensitive about my work and I wanted to do my very best. I learned that my art is my art and I don’t need anyone approval. The lessons I’ve learned is keep doing what you want! Not everything needs to be explained and keep chasing your dreams! I’ve inspired a lot of people and having people look up to me makes me smile. This is only the beginning.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’m a really chill person so I’ll always recommend anyplace that has seafood! I would also recommend cool parks and bowling alleys for some real fun. I do love going out to clubs but I don’t really have a favorite currently just anything with good vibes.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shoutout to my dear friend Natrawn “TROODA” Maxwell. He is working on a clothing brand right now, he’s a dancer, a creative and photographer. He definitely is someone I look up to right now. Seeing his work ethic and dedication to what he does is mind blowing. I believe his name and brand will be very big one day.
