How has your experience reporting for Inside Life changed you?
Inside Life has changed my approach towards animals and their habitats. It's shown me how different species treat each other and the world around them. It's given me an insight into how the parents treat their young compared to other species of life.

What was your scariest moment?
My scariest moment of the experience definitely has to be when I and the film crew were reporting with Steve on a huge slope next to a frigate bird's nest because either side of us there was a huge drop down to the rocky shore.

What was your most exciting moment?
My most exciting moment was when I went up in a helicopter, high above Tobago. It was my first time in a helicopter and it was the most amazing experience.

Tell us the most interesting fact you learnt?
Just learning about how cameramen work their equipment was incredible for me. Getting to watch them in action I see how much hard work and the extreme lengths that cameramen go to for the right shot. They go where no one has ever gone before and dare to do what no one has ever done before.
