When you think about it, each of our childhood was filled with wonder and playfulness. As kids, we were all curious and always learning about our surroundings. We would spend time at the playground where fond memories were made. But this girl named Tippi Degré spent the first 10 years of her life somewhere you would never guess… Yes, she literally grew up in the wild! So since she was raised in the jungle, what she grew up to be was definitely something interesting…

To grow up in the wild is something we only see on the television screen. Although most of us may have dreamt about it, you would not necessarily find anyone who actually experienced it. Well, there is one exception. Her name is Tippi Degré. She is a little French girl who went on to spend her early youth in Namibia, Africa.

So how come this girl grew up all the way here and not in her native land of France? Well, you see, the little girl’s parents had careers that were a little unconventional. Working as wildlife photographers, they would often click unbelievable photos of Tippi next to all sorts of wild animals. Their baby girl would often pose right next to massive elephants and even lions!

Most of us have memories of running around with our friends at the park or at playgrounds. We would often play games and also hide and seek with our friends in the neighborhood or the park.

This might be hard to believe, but just check the photos her parents took of her…
