If asked who I would like to meet of any person, living or not
hands down it would be Jane Goodall.
Aside from being an incredible voice for the saviour of primates
around the world, I think she would be most interesting to spend a day with.
At 77 years old, she still traipses around the jungle for hours,
crouching amongst the chimpanzees, as well as
traipsing around the world to bring education to everyone
from small children to some of the top governmental officials around.
It amazes me what she has achieved in her life as a person
without a scientific background.
It is only through her passion to connect with our closest living
relative, that she has accomplished what she has.
And so my little tribute...
If you have about 13 minutes you should watch this
interview from 60 Minutes a few weeks ago.
If I had a chance to sit and sip tea with Dame Goodall,
I think I would like to ask her about her childhood and what
inspired her to go out and do the things she did.
Imagine being a young, white British woman and
deciding to go off roaming the jungles of Africa!
What ever her drive, we are all the better for it.
