Hands down, one of the best parts of the day today! This 8 year old will change the world some day. Probably more than once. His passion and excitement to learn about animals (I know this sounds cliche) reminds me of my mind-set at his age and to be honest, my mind-set even now.

Dylan asked his mom if he could meet me and thus she took him to the zoo two days in a row. We finally crossed paths today and he had some great questions for me. Sure his mom tweeted later that he was on cloud 9 after meeting me. But I gotta be honest with you, so was I. It means a lot to know the next generation of zoologists, conservationists & scientists are learning everything they can now, to make a difference in the near future.

I look forward to working with you in the future Dylan, I'm sure we will cross paths again.
