SheJumps—a U.S.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the participation of women and girls in outdoor activities to foster confidence, leadership, and connection to nature and community—believes that nature is where we go to become who we are meant to be. We look to nature for the many gifts it offers us. Nature is an escape. Nature has no internet, no deadlines, no in-laws, and no mirrors. Nature provides a place to feel humbled and inspired, offering spaces for reflecting and places to fill our minds with wonder and awe. We feel challenged and empowered in nature, digging deep into our abilities, bumping up against our insecurities, and finding new ways to define ourselves.
