(Jessica Scott | The Grand Rapids Press)
Meet Tony. He's 94-years-old and still gets up every morning to travel to the local YMCA for a swim and a light walk. Everyone there seemed to know his name. He's probably one of the sweetest people I've got the opportunity to photograph. He said to me, after learning I was an intern, "So you're a rookie. You know, I think you'll do a great job, no matter what." Thanks Tony for giving this girl a little the boost I needed to hear.
