      Hi Haileybailey,

      Great to hear from you again!

      Most amazing things are pretty personal, so what I think is amazing, you might think is very geeky!

      Well in my life: Doing a horse riding safari in a wildlife park in South Africa is probably the most amazing thing i’ve done. We got to gallop across open plains where all the animals were. My favouites to see were the Elephants and the zebras, we even saw a zebra foal!! I’ve also done a driving safari but doing it on a horse is a totally different experience and you feel so much closer to the animals. Plus it’s pretty cool galloping anywhere really!! i did it with a friend of mine, we’re both horse mad and also love wild animals so we had so much fun. We spent the whole time giggling!!

      In my work: Presenting my research on a big stage in New Zealand in front of experts on TB from all over the world! It was so frightening but in the end good fun and I learned loads. I also made lots of new friends too, which is great. Especially when I can visit them in the cool places where they live like Chile and Brazil!!

      What about you? What’s the most amazing thing you’ve ever done?
