Colette (Gabrielle Sidone): French Writer
Colette was a writer with a distinctive, sparkling, style of prose who wrote compelling stories with female protagonists at their center. She was a strong and independent woman who followed her own unique path in life. I have always admired her as an artist and woman. Among her books are: the Claudine novels (1900-1903), My Mother’s House (1922), Sido (1930), and The Vagabond(1910).

Dr. Jane Goodall: Primatologist and Anthropologist
Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Goodall braved a realm of unknowns to give the world a remarkable window into humankind’s closest living relatives. Through more than 50 years of groundbreaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share.
