In our society, from a young age girls are often told how they should act, who they should be, and what they should be interested in. Girls are not often encouraged to take up outdoor sports as many boys are. As a result, the outdoors becomes a foreign space to many girls as they grow up. This is not how it should be.
Hi folks! My name is Isabella Pardales, I am currently a first year at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. I attended Yarmouth High School and had the privilege of leading the Yarmouth Outing Club my Junior and Senior year.
I recently spent two days hiking the backside of Grand Manan, a small New Brunswick Island in the Bay of Fundy about 9 miles off the Maine coast. Grand Manan may only be 1.5 hours away by ferry, but it can feel like another world.
