Growing up in Kenya, nature has always been a huge part of my life. I was lucky enough to have camping spots, hiking trails and national parks not too far from home and even luckier to have gotten the chance to explore them.
Nature, to me, has always been a bit of an escape. It allows you to take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience new things. Being outside in the mountains or watching the sunset over a lake brings a sense of peace and belonging.
My favourite part about nature is that even though everybody’s experience is different, I have never seen someone resist a smile while looking out at some mountain ranges or watching the sunset or even watching animals in parks. It’s always a smile or a look of awe.
