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 Dr Jane Goodall 7 years ago when I was in year 7. I became passionate and very intrigued by Janes work which drove me to become a member of Roots and Shoots during my whole high school journey and continuing after I completed school and into university life. Jane is an incredibly inspirational woman. I am extremely proud to be an ambassador for The Jane Goodall Institute and I feel privileged to walk in some of Janes footsteps.
Do you have any advice on how approach becoming an active part of Roots & Shoots Australia?
I believe you need to do some research first. You can google search Jane Goodall and Roots and Shoots etc.. to give you an insight into Roots and Shoots and what it is all about. If you are already apart of Roots and Shoots you can communicate with other students from other schools to see what projects they have successfully completed and you can also start with a basic idea and brainstorm and determine what is realistic and therefore set goals and a plan.
