Biggest challenge from doing the Award:
The biggest challenge from pursuing the Award was most definitely obtaining approval from the site I visited to shoot the photos.

Tell us the story behind your photo:
The story behind the photo is that during a 2019 trip to my home country Morocco, I alongside my peers held a neurodiversity event which was held in Taxi Beach, Kanitra, Morocco and there I decided to snap a photo during the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen on the Atlantic Coast and in general. Furthermore, due to large inspiration that the main center of the photo was the Sun, it quite frankly could not have represented diversity and inclusion enough and was absolutely fascinating to remember such a vital event in my career with an absolutely astonishing photo!
