This past May I traveled to Portland, Oregon and other locations in the Pacific Northwest to expand my love for photography. My appreciation for nature prospered as well as my wellness. Before this, I had never utilized a professional camera, so I had a wealth of information to learn. It is valuable to have had this experience because it will be important, when I am a nurse, to participate in different hobbies to prevent burnout. With the support from my peers and faculty, I am proud of what I accomplished on this trip and am excited to share the details. Additionally, my confidence improved from this by navigating an unfamiliar area, talking to new friends, and learning how to accept help when needed. Overall, this trip inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and discover that I am capable of anything.
