"I came home with my shoes...and a potential new career" by Valerie Leone, Panama
WINNER: Learning in Action
This picture was taken in Boca Chica, a fishing town where I spent a week studying local fisheries. This entailed taking a boat to mangroves, wading in waist deep mud and climbing through the jungle of roots to search for conch. With what we caught and what our native guide caught (three times more than the 12 of us searching combined) we made ceviche.
