Bio: Some of my earliest memories I have are being in and experiencing the African bush with my family who are likewise passionate about nature conservation. Through these experiences, I became fascinated with the interactions and associations continually showcased between and within different plant and animal species. Living abroad for 7 years, finishing high school in Beijing, China and graduating from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland in Ecological Sciences (Hons. Conservation and management) seriously highlighted my passion and earliest dream of becoming a safari guide. Living with a motto of life with no regrets and ‘ failure is temporary but regret is forever’ made me follow my childhood dream. I have been guiding for just over 3 years now, I love every single minute of it. I have a keen interest in animal behavior, birds and photography.
