    This is a great inspiration to us all. Nature is injured and it's our call to help it heal. She is a great hero., We need to follow her path of activism too. Thank u Brut nature!

    She certainly earned her award. Interesting how she divorced her husband because he was holding her back. Shows women dont really need men!

    Why weren’t we taught about about this woman and the good works she’s doing? Why isn’t she a topic of conversation? This is a positive female role model.
