Tracie Verdin pictured in her room. She and her family live in Pointe Aux Chene, a Native American community on the coast of southeast Louisiana. Pointe Aux Chene is particularly affected by coastal erosion. The Verdins are fishermen and were unable to fish in the spring season due to oil contamination. Tracie would like to be a boat captain herself but her family don't support her choice because she is a woman.
