Jane Goodall has always been my role model, pursuing her dreams, and inspiring others. Ever since I was A kid, I’ve always looked up to Goodall. For my six birthdays, I got a graphic novel biography about her life, and what a huge impact she has made. She has always been my role model, succeeding in a scientific world largely dominated by men. Starting at a young age, Jane pictured a life living in the jungle. She dreamed of a life with her stuffed chimpanzee, named Jubilee. Her mother was her supporter’s biggest supporter in this dream. “If you really want something, and really work hard, and take advantage of opportunities, and never give up, you will find a way.” That was what janes mother would say. Though she struggled to start and pursue that dream in the start, she never faltered, taking all opportunities with open arms and every risk. Although it did take time to get to her dream. Jane faced many obstacles, such as the cost. not have the money to pay for college, nor to pay for her tuition to go to Africa. She worked countless hours for a full year before she ended up making enough to catch a ferry ride all the way to Africa. She ended up making groundbreaking discoveries within her field of study as a primatologist. She has found similarities between humans and apes, giving us a whole new perspective on the world we live in. Jane never gave up, every high and low of her life. I’ve always admired her for that, as well as her passion for animals. I’ve always wanted to pursue, job Submerged with animals. That’s why I’ve always wanted to be a vet, and hearing Jane’s story, all the ups, and downs have always supported my dreams. She has always been a determined, outgoing, and passionate learner. Jane is extremely brave, taking risks not only for herself but for so many others. She never on her dream, never faltered on knowing where she should be. I’ve always aspired to have qualities like her, as she believes everyone has an impact. Speaking of impact, I think that Jane will never really be forgotten, She changed the world’s perspective on science. Finding similarities between humans and apes is what got us starting to think that we are so similar to them. Jane Goodall has always been a memorable person from the day she started her research, placing a building block that she made into a tower.
A goal that I have for my upcoming research is to learn a bit more about the modern Jane Goodall.
