Having grown up in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Joshua McKenney is a 2020 Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences graduate, and is now attending Southern New Hampshire University to major in photography.
While attending TSAS, Joshua discovered his passion for photography and, wanting to learn more, he started taking photography courses in Tulsa Community College while still attending high school. He then took a gap year before college to focus on photography and the business he started, Zachariah Photography, taking high school senior portraits and capturing special events.
In 2021, Joshua enrolled in Southern New Hampshire University, where he was accepted and will graduate in 2024.
Having been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at a young age, during Joshua’s elementary years and high school years, he was on an IEP because the teachers thought he could not keep up with the other students with the amount of work needed. Despite being teased because of his disability and being on an IEP, Joshua never lost his willingness to learn and excel, learning on his faith and trust in God and not allowing other people to define who he was as a person.
