    “Zoo Corps has really changed my life. Before I was really shy and I absolutely feared and hated public speaking and talking in front of an audience. But now that I did Zoo Corps, I love talking in front of people. Educating people is something I love to do now. Thank you Zoo Corps for the amazing opportunity you gave me.”– Mari P.
