"Take a moment. Close your eyes. Take a breath. It's about what inspires you, what drives you to your goal. To be a force of nature you have to let nature in, you have to analyze it, you have to be open to reading the signs, you have to give into it, you have to grab it, you have to feel it coursing through your veins, you have to dig deep to find that extra push, you have to breathe it in and let go. Its about losing yourself and finding yourself at the same time. We all have that powerful capability if we are willing to find it and nurture it". This is a submission for REI’s “Force of Nature” campaign to empower fearless women in the wild; claiming their space and shedding gender + racial stereotypes outside to make it the largest level playing field on earth.
