"Here I am riding my bicycle on the streets of Amsterdam. Bicycling is the main form of transportation here in Amsterdam, and was something that I really had to get used to. Before I got to Amsterdam, I hadn't ridden a bike in ten years, so when I was finally able to do it here, I really felt like a local, and not an outsider."
Other winners include BSOS students Olivia Pettingill and Sarah Eppley.
