This photo was taken in Paris at Place de la République after the terrorist attacks in November, 2015. The memorial for the victims was set up at Place de la République, which is located near the Bataclan Theater and the restaurants that were attacked. I feel that this picture is very symbolic of the French sentiment and strength after the terrorist attacks. Photo by Laura Woodward.
The 12 Apostles is a collection of limestone stacks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park, by the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Unfortunately, there are only 8 remaining "apostles," with the most recent stack collapse in 2005. Photo by Taylor Payne.
During Hurricane David in 1979, a Baobab tree in the Botanic Gardens of Dominica was blown over onto an empty school bus. The tree still continues to grow and thrive to this day. This scene was a vivid reminder of the power and resilience of nature. Photo by Grace Hassler.
We visited a local sheep farmer, who also competes in herding competitions and has won nationally. He taught us all about herding and how he uses whistles to communicate with his dogs, even when they're out of sight over hills and across fields. He manages a team of 5 dogs, and with them can herd hundreds of sheep at a time. Photo by Tyler Lavender.
This was one of the most amazing safari moments we had. This day was one of our first days going on safari and we had to drive through the Ngorongoro Crater to get to the Serengeti. It was incredible how close the elephant got to our jeep and wasn't even fazed by us. Photo by Charlotte Vincent.
People stand up on chairs, push each other out of the way, and hold their selfie sticks high to capture a photo of Pope Francis. This moment reflects the great influence that the Pope can have on people, but at the same time shows how technology driven our culture is. The audience appeared to be more focused on taking pictures instead of viewing the Pope with their own eyes. Photo by David Litz.
The group visited a peninsula in Diamond Harbor, and spent the day hiking through the coniferous forests and climbing up steep rocky cliffs. It was one of our first days in New Zealand and was the first chance we got to bond and really get to know each other. It made me really appreciate the people around me and showed me just how much we rely on one another as it took a lot of collaboration to navigate up the unstable rocks. Photo by Tyler Lavender.
