We had the good fortune of connecting with Elyza Jyels and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elyza, what matters most to you?
A value/principle I have always held close to me, Is communication. Communication is so important to me. From my work space, relationships and overall any interactions I make in life. It’s important to me that everyone is heard because no ones feelings or thoughts should ever feel unvalued. I’m a big communicator, i love expressing my emotions and thoughts. And honestly i’ve learned a lot by listening to others when communicating with me.

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 an aspiring film director! Over the years i’ve done photography and short films on all types of genres. I’ve always had a love for the film industry. I currently have a photography business and hope to bloom more within the years. My work can be found on instagram at Capturelyza.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If my Best friend was visiting I would take them to the aquarium all day to take pictures and enjoy the sea life. i adore the sea life!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I hundred percent would thank my wonderful mother. Who has not only sacrificed so much for me but has also pushed me in pursuing my dreams till the very end. She’s my rock, she holds me down and has blessed me with so much. It’s inspiring to hear how she’s become the strong power woman she is today.
