Wedge-tailed eagles sometimes use the thermal currents to attain elevation. It is the southern rockface of Wingen Maid Nature Reserve which, when viewed from certain angles, looks like the profile of a woman. Some say she is sitting, some say she is clutching flowers to her breast. A Wanaruah story explains that the Gumaroi tribe from over the Liverpool Range sent a raiding party south to steal Wanaruah women for wives.
Warned by the Wiradjuri people, the Wanaruah warriors prepared for the attack. After the battle all the warriors returned except for one. The warrior's beloved sat at the edge of the cliff waiting for his return.

Connections are hard to make. It is difficult to obtain a worldly perspective on life. I do want to travel. I need to get out of Vermont, to see different places of the world and to meet different people. I need to experience the parts of life that Vermont simply cannot offer. My biggest worry is simple: will I be able to make a difference from this tiny corner of the world? Can my voice be heard? Vermont is home.
Vermont is the place where I feel safe, where I feel sure of my identity.

I am too much an introvert to crave the bustle of a city, and I love my trees too much to ever give up their beautiful blaze, year after year. My identity forms my voice, and it it my voice that I want to use to shape my world.
Coolidge believed that he had to leave home to strengthen his voice. I believe there is a power that lies in speaking from home, from what I know, from what is true to me.
The future of Vermont will be determined by the voices and words that people of my generation choose to use. The words they will argue with, the words they will love with, and the words they deem important enough to put into law. Words have power, as Coolidge learned in his years as a lawyer and as a politician. I want my words to touch people across Vermont, across the nation, across the world.
I draw strength from our race of pioneers, and inspiration from the trees that define our beautiful state. Vermont is more that a place on a map; it is a way of life, one that has shaped me and influenced my voice.
