For as long as I can remember, Vandana Shiva has always been my hero. Her work with agriculture, organic living, and women have inspired so many. She is a boss. A fire. A fierce truth that tugs at the heart and pushes us all to be our best.
I was so grateful that the University of Montana allowed me to come photograph the event and gave us Missoulan's the gift of hope, truth, and a reminding that we are all capable of amazing acts of love. Thank you Dr. Shiva & UofM.

"For a while we might lie underground, but at the right moment we germinate and burst out with all of our potential. Let us celebrate the connections between Mother Earth and ourselves. We are, after all, of the Earth. We are all made of soil … Let us stay united, let us stay strong, let us stay joyful.” ~ Vandana Shiva
