When we landed in Resolute Bay is when it really hit me what Students on Ice was. It was bleak and didn’t look like anything I had ever seen before. In it’s bleakness it was also one of the most beautiful places I have been. They were taking us to one of the most desolate yet beautiful places on Earth and teaching us important things that will impact us throughout our lives.
When I first arrived I was taking pictures of the smallest pieces of ice, not understanding the magnificent scale of what I would soon see.
In Greenland, the native language wasn’t taken away and even the youngest children are fluent. This has played an important role in keeping the culture strong.
As I look down on the clouds I don’t want tomorrow to come. I am not excited to leave my home away from home, the Ocean Endeavour.
