“Jane Goodall is my biggest inspiration. She is a famous primatologist. I idolize her because I also want to be a primatologist. In the 1960’s when she was in her early twenties, she explored the Congo as a young woman to study chimps, she was one of the first women to do that. Her story is very empowering and makes me feel like chasing your dreams is possible.” -senior Mary O’Rourke
