Where did you first hear about Dr Jane Goodall, and what does she mean to you now as part of the NYLC?
I first heard about Jane Goodall when I participated in ‘International Peace Day’ at Taronga Zoo in 2015. From that moment on I was obsessed with learning as much as I could about her by reading her books and joining the ‘Roots & Shoots’ program. Now being a part of the National Youth Leadership Council, I have the amazing opportunity to spread Jane Goodall’s message to a national audience, across Australia. Dr Jane Goodall is someone we can all look up to, and is someone I look up to even more through the opportunity she and JGIA have given me as part of the NYLC.
