Nick Fahy


Nick Fahy is the winner of the Pulitzer Center's 2016 Out of Eden Walk essay contest. Fahy joined Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Paul Salopek in Uzbekistan for Out of Eden Walk, Salopek's seven-year walk around the world from Ethiopia to South America.

Fahy, a rising high school junior at Boston College High School, was one of dozens of students who entered the contest, held in partnership with Philmont Scout Ranch, an adventure camp in New Mexico. Entrants were asked to respond to the question "What do you notice about a place when you slow down?"
