I had been dreaming of Africa since I was 7, conjuring up ideas of chasing chimpanzees in the forest.

While my dream seemed impossibly imaginative, my mother disagreed. After graduating from Kearney High School, then Missouri State University, I completed my master’s degree at Central Washington University, studying captive chimpanzees who use sign language. In hopes of visiting Africa and studying wild chimpanzees, I started a doctoral program at the University of Southern California. On Nov. 29, 2010, I moved to Kanyawara, Kibale National Park, Uganda, for one year.
