She's studied English, music, film, and other creative fields. In her spare time she's reading or writing creative nonfiction, arranging songs, or writing jokes just in case she some day decides to try stand up comedy.

Poaching might seem like a problem of the past, reserved only for the most brutish and hulking barbarians, but it's still a very big problem today. Animals are gunned down so that the attackers can sell their valuable horns, tusks, and more. The lives of these animals sadly mean nothing to them.

The story of Thandi — an African rhino who was found suffering — and her journey to recovery and new life is one that needs to be heard across the world. It will break your heart and inspire you at the same time.
