A Different Kind of Award

Two days ago I got a letter.  It wasn’t one I was expecting. I honestly had forgotten in this crazy rush of life that I had applied…


I think I’m still in shock…

I have been given a fellowship. I will spend 10 days working with leading scientists studying climate change…in the Arctic Circle.

Yes…the Arctic Circle.

Not your average everyday kind of adventure!

I will be staying in a little town called Churchill. In Manitoba, Canada. Know as the polar bear and beluga whale capital of the world!

Visit http://www.everythingchurchill.com to learn more about this incredible place.

I am beyond excited…

What an amazing opportunity! I am humbled and extremely grateful!

And so…

Come July, I will be blogging from the Arctic Circle.

I hope you’ll join me!
