Jane Goodall's early love for chimpanzees started after her father gifted her with a stuffed chimpanzee toy. While visiting a friend in Kenya, she took a job as a secretary for archaeologist Louis Leakey who she had reached out to in an effort to learn more about the study of apes of Africa.
Unknown to Goodall, Leakey had been searching for a chimpanzee researcher. Unable to find one or anyone as passionate as Goodall, he decided to fund her education and early trips to study chimpanzees.
This daring young woman proved that women are as capable as men in the pursuit of understanding the world.
