Hermione Wang '18

Bryant S. Kendrick Memorial Outdoors Fund Award, Summer 2017

One of the best parts of my trip on the East Coast Trail in Newfoundland, Canada was travelling to a part of my home country that I had never been before. The views along the entire trail were absolutely breathtaking, ranging from coastal cliffs to swampy marshes. Everyone I met was friendly and helpful. In fact, I ended the trip staying with an elderly couple in St. John's I had met along the trail.

My journey was one of challenges. It involved decision making, building friendships and more self resolve and discipline and I had at times. Being alone with nature was a powerful feeling, but I was also acutely aware of how vulnerable I was. Yet, it was also one of the best things that I have ever done and an unforgettable experience.
