Melanie Said
I grew up in London but my mom grew up on a farm. She inspired in me a love of animals and plants, anything to do with nature. We had lots of pets, and Mom was a bit of an amateur botanist. When I wanted to learn more about animals, mom took me to the library. My favorite thing was when she would take me to the Natural History Museum-always the biggest treat. The museum filled me with wonder and awe.
