Honestly, I’m still processing it. I’ve wanted to host a nature show for so long. That’s what led me to become a wildlife ecologist. I wanted to travel the world and see tigers, whales, and other wildlife. But I wasn’t actively pursuing my dream of hosting a show, so when I got the offer, it felt so surreal. And if the show can do for other girls what it did for me, that would be extraordinary.

I’m a mom of two, and raising these little people who will inherit this world offers a lot of hope. I also get to spend a lot of time in nature, and its resilience is remarkable.
