Houston Gateway to the Americas

The Colombia Texas Chamber of Commerce, the U.S.-Panama Business Council, the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Houston Partnership, the University of Houston, and Houston First have joined forces to organize the first hemispheric Conference & Expo in Houston titled “Houston: Gateway to the Americas”, to be held at the The Westin Houston, Memorial City on October 24-26, 2016.

Why Houston?

Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and the fifth largest metropolitan region. It is recognized as the United States’ epicenter of Energy Center and its Texas Medical Center is unparalleled in the world. The Houston Ship Channel, hosting the Port of Houston, is the largest port in the United States in international tonnage and its airport system is the top ten in the nation and #3 in flights to the Americas.

Houston’s leadership position will be strengthened with the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled to the finalized in the first half of 2016. The expansion will position Houston as the principal port of Central USA, with large implications for the trade and investment. The Houston port is the presently deepening its container port to accommodate post-Panamax ships while at the same time installing new container cranes.

The conference will serve to strengthen the “connection” between Houston and the Americas, enhancing its position as the true gateway. It will undoubtedly expand on existing trade and lead to additional transfer of technology, education, tourism and other areas.

Venue
 Explore the city of Houston at The Westin Houston, Memorial City, our West Houston hotel – ranked #7 on the 2014 U.S. News & World Report list of Best Houston Hotels.

Mihaela Noroc Photography

Photographer from Romania, the author of an unique project -The Atlas of Beauty-. She travels and captures the natural and diverse beauty around the world.

I photographed women in 37 countries, but there are more faces on earth to be discovered.

Your support is really important because it will help me reach more places of the earth and show more diversity of our amazing planet. Our world really needs an Atlas of Beauty and we can create it together.

What is The Atlas of Beauty

First of all, let me introduce myself: I’m Mihaela Noroc, a 29 years old photographer from Romania. In the past 2 years I traveled around the world, with my own small savings, photographing hundreds of women and creating a project called The Atlas of Beauty.

My goal is to show that beauty is everywhere and is not about race, money or trends, but more about being yourself, natural and authentic.

Today more and more women feel a pressure to look in a certain way, but I think we are beautiful, if we treasure what makes us unique.

The Atlas of Beauty became viral on the internet and major publications, from all around the world, wrote about it. Now I have the chance to make my statement heard so it’s very important to continue my project.


19333-R3L8T8D-900-different-countries-women-portrait-photography-michaela-noroc-5-moscow-russiaI have to travel at least one year to gather enough images for publishing a comprehensive Atlas, but I really need your support to do this journey.

19345-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere16__880I plan to visit all continents, except Antarctica, and I will make my exact route based on your votes. I will go in both modern and traditional countries. I will cover different kind of environments from cities, villages and remote areas to show the diversity of our planet, through portraits of women.

19349-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere7__880Now millions of people will see my photos and together we can send a powerful message to the world. We can show that beauty is in our differences and we should all be proud of ourselves.

Now that I reached the funding goal, I can cover the expenses listed above. 

But more funds I raise, more countries and diversity I will capture. The extra funds are essential for the quality of the project and for the film of the journey so each contribution is still very important, until the last day of the campaign. 

19340-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere10__880With your support, I will study more areas of the world.

I will buy a dedicated video camera and microphone.  The documentary will be very authentic and realistic, but it still needs investments.

19351-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere9__880I will also be able to offer more support when visiting communities in need.

Sometime I will be able to rent a car to go in more remote places.

20150315121000-2eThe Impact of the project

The Atlas of Beauty has been featured in major publications of the world. This coverage offers us the opportunity to send our message to more people.

20150315150344-colaj_logo

But this is just the beginning. If I will have your support I will capture much more diversity. Together we will continue to show that beauty means to be yourself, to be proud of your roots, to cultivate what you have, instead of being disappointed about something that you don’t have.

Beauty is in our differences and uniqueness. Now I’m saying it trough words, but if I will have your support, I will “say” it better through my photos.

19350-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere8__880-1Risks and challenges

In my previous journey I had dangerous moments, hard days of working, exhausting routes, unfriendly viruses, but I will do it again, with all my passion. This time I will have more experience and more confidence, knowing that wonderful people from all around the world are supporting me.

19347-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere18__880Other ways you can help

Any contribution is important and will help me to continue. But you can also support me by sharing my story with your friends and letting the world know about The Atlas of Beauty Campaign.

19343-R3L8T8D-900-I-photographed-women-from-37-countries-to-show-that-beauty-is-everywhere14__880-1Together we can show to the world that beauty is everywhere. Thank you very much for your support!
