    Nevaeha Nelson, also known as Ya-Ya, poses for a portrait at Future Boxing Club in Downtown Rochester, Nov. 18th, 2014. The Future Boxing Club is an after school program for the youth of Rochester and was designed to keep the children off the streets. I asked Ya-Ya, who is one of the only girls who boxes here to look at me like one of the guys had beat her in a fight. "The boys never beat me", was how she responded.

    I like the strength and directness of this portrait. I love that you have included the quote from Ya-Ya. It reinforces the quiet confidence that she exudes in the image.
