Jackie Richards

Jackie is a 21-year old psychology major with hopes of becoming a wilderness therapist.  That is a graduate program that uses nature and outdoors/survival skills as a form of therapy.  As a wilderness therapist, you could take people out in the woods and show them the real natural beauties of life by having them meditate and feel all around them, or by photographing and painting. It also pushes some to their extremes while forcing them to survive with nothing but the outdoors around them...like, it helps them release primal instincts.  When i heard about it, I instantly knew that that is what i want to do.
