Patricia, 2016
In the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo, Patricia, 22, was raped and left to die in the bush. A woman found her, cared for her and sent Patricia to safety in Nairobi, Kenya. Patricia came to the U.S. alone in October 2015, with no knowledge of the fate of her family. Having been given the opportunity for a future of safety and hope, Patricia intends to build a life that honors those who have not been as fortunate. She hopes to become a voice for women who continue to suffer, as well as those who have died.

No wonder that haul-out rocks are covered in Steller sea lions, otters cling to abundant kelp, and it is common to see the white heads of bald eagles speckling the treetops.

Upside Down | Photograph by Romano Salis
“Acrobat and mountain guide Lukas Mathis on the top of Fiamma, a peak in the eastern part of the Alps,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Romano Salis. “After several fails, Lukas could hold his handstand and I was able to catch this breathtaking moment.”

“This seems so dangerous, to do a handstand on the peak of this rock face. I love how wide you made this frame, revealing not only the epic landscape to this moment, but also the height of Fiamma. I agree with Your Shot photographer Valerie Bryan who commented, 'Awesome shot! Although my knees got a bit weak looking at it! LOL! The sky is in perfect formation drawing your eye right to the man! Love it!'" — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)
