Silhouette

Photo taken by contributor Hannah, a 21-year-old who has battled depression and anxiety for seven years. She kept her depression and attempted suicide hidden for several years, but has since opened up about her story in an attempt to encourage others do the same. She helped start The Resilience Project to provide a platform for students to share their stories of struggle and strength.

About this photo: “The wildlife I encountered in Botswana weren’t put there for the pleasure or entertainment of humans; I was a mere spectator in their world. As we crept through the bush, I felt exposed and powerless. I felt the thrilling sense of a chase, but also an indescribable sense of peace in the Delta. Look for peace where you least expect it.”
