2013 – Makaha, Hawaii

On one of my first National Geographic assignments, I photographed these three young Hawaiian women standing on the brink of the same ocean their families have surfed for generations. They gaze out at the horizon, anticipating the rising waves with their boards clutched beneath their arms. Across the globe, our young leaders are looking towards the future and it’s up to us to take action today to create a better world for them tomorrow.
