At 8 years old I was taken on a holiday to Seychelles. One day, the Conservationist working on the island told the guests to wait at the beach whilst he went to collect turtle hatchlings from the nest to be released. But, I ran after him and he let me go with him to help. Upon my return, I said to my parents "I want to be a Conservationist". I am now in the final year of my BSc Zoology (INT) degree, carrying out research on African painted dogs, having worked with numerous species of animals around the world. I intend to do all I can to save our precious biodiversity on this planet.
