Tamara Ramos is a creative who is using her talent to raise awareness.
She is a professional photographic artist who uses her gift to talk about and inspire others on a wide range of social issues and topics.
That is why she chose to host a fund raiser for Woman Space, a non-profit in Trenton, NJ serving the women and families impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault.
This fund raiser also signified the launch of her photography service that she chose to name Euphemia Photography.
What drove Tamara to support this cause is not just a love for photography and artistic creativity, but a chance to help other women and victims of domestic violence. What also drove her is the memory of a strong and courageous woman who was tragically killed as a result of domestic violence, her own grandmother who was also named Euphemia.
Tamara never met her grandmother but was always told by family members that she looks just like her, causing some to weep when they see her because of the striking similarity.
Tamara never understood the reason for this deep display of sadness until one day, one of Tamara's aunts finally sat her down and told her about what caused her grandmother to die at such an early age.
