Throwback to the time I was trying really hard to befriend a seagull. It didn’t quite work, but at least it didn’t attack me or pooped on me!🙌🏻
Can you believe we are approaching the end of summer!? Summer is my fave season and it always makes me a little sad to see it go. I would much prefer to live in my summer dresses all year round than wear layers of clothes and be constantly cold😬!
Nevertheless, this was probably one of the best summers (mental health wise) I have had in maaany years! I feel like I’ve been able to actually see just how far I’ve come. And I can tell you the hard work you put in in yourself and things you care about always pays off!
Big wins for me has been the feeling of being so much more free in my body. The acceptance I have towards it, rather than all of the judgments I used to torture myself with. The gratitude for what it does for me. The self confidence and self belief that has been growing and allowing me to pursue different opportunities and things that have been so out of my comfort zone!
I would LOVE to hear in the comments, about what went well for you this summer, your wins, accomplishments or best memories?☺️🌊
Last year I was honored with a €10k prize for agricultural journalism from the Thomson Reuters Foundation, and pledged to use it to further my work on the global food supply. I continued that @feedtheplanet this summer by examining the grape harvest in the volcanic landscape of the Canary Islands. Lanzarote has a unique form of pit agriculture that lets plants take advantage of the wetter, richer soil at depth, and be protected from strong trade winds. @thomsonreutersfoundation@bcfnfoundation
