Conquering Fears

When my daughter was really young, she had a nightmare about a kangaroo nipping at her neck. From then on, she was terrified of them. Later, as a teen, she was nominated to be a student ambassador to Australia. For several weeks her group met and prepared for the nineteen day trip. My daughter wasn't concerned about being far away from home, or being with people that she barely knew, or the fourteen hour flight. The only thing she worried about was having to encounter a kangaroo. That is what makes the picture below so special. My daughter was able to conquer her fear and actually feed a kangaroo. In fact, she fed several of them!
