A Girl Who Was Raised in African Wildlife
An astounding story, we have today about a girl who grew up in African wildlife. Her only and best friends were a five-ton elephant and a cheetah whom she used to call her “brothers”. She befriended with snakes, crocodiles, baby zebras, giraffes, lion cubs, mongooses and many more. What a lucky girl.
A girl with the name of Tippi was born in Namibia to French wildlife photographer parents and grew up in Africa. Her Parents said: “It was magical to be able to be free in this nature with this child. She was a very lucky little girl – she was born and raised until the age of 10 totally in the wild.” Tippi is now 23 and this is what she’s got to say about her unusual company: “I don’t have friends here. Because I never see children. So the animals are my friends” . Her parents Sylvie Robert and Alain Degre covered full story in their book called Tippi of Africa.
There are many good things in our civilization like technology, science, careers etc. However, as always there are negative ones, too: some people forget everything and everyone and think only about work and money, see only smartphones or talk only about insignificant things. So, maybe it is better to quit this all and go back to wildlife to play the game of survival where the only thing that bothers you, is your grumbling stomach. No any established life structure. You don’t have to go to school, college, then marry, find work, take a loan, buy a house and live the rest of your life to pay the loan. You are practically free. But remember it is your choise how to live. You can live a civilized life and think about your beloved ones, see ideas or talk about great things, you can leave work and start your own business or write a book. There are no rules in this society so don’t be afraid to live the way you want.
