A La Sainte Terrer the "sainte-terrer": cite Henry David Thoreau. The art of walking or "sauntering," seeking holy experience from their feet, the land, and the sky. In other words, a traveler.

My Scholarship entry - My Kind of Adventure

WORLDWIDE | Friday, 12 October 2012 | Views [184] | Comments [1] | Scholarship Entry

Even as a girl, much to the dismay of my guardians, I constantly was losing myself in the woods, sprinting into the ocean, jumping through mud: I was happy just to connect to nature. As we age, we tend to lose this fervor. While traveling can rekindle it, something more fundamental also can: a positive attitude. Wielding a camera and an open mind, one is forced to focus on all the surprises the world has to offer. That inspired my subject matter: I want to show that, whether in the Australian outback or in my backyard, I can find awe in nature, if I chose to look. I have some filmmaking experience; I've made home videos since I was 8, have become a serious photographer, created a documentary on the Tasmanian Devil, and made art films in college and pieces as a reporter in the music industry. I have a story and a narrative unlike anyone else's, and it has been my ambition to create beautiful pieces that compel, inform, and inspire. While I've always had this drive and talent for filmmaking, I've also been afraid, afraid that I wasn't good enough to follow my dream. Winning this scholarship would give me that extra push to accomplish great things that I know I am capable of.

Hi there,

It looks like your video is set to 'private', you'll need to make it public so we can view it.
