Amanda Gets Interviewed

Amanda Castleman is lovely and wonderful. And not just cuz she's a chick in a mostly men's adventure-travel world.

I just read an interview with her on Rolf Potts site. And she plugged Dik-Dik! She certainly did not have to do that. She could have spent the entire interview talking about her own projects, promoting her own career. But no, she took a second to promote me too.

I respond well to support and feedback, and I wilt when I get ignored or criticized. Some people are like that, while others rise to a challenge when given negative feedback. Amanda knows now that I thrive on support, but she didn't know it last year when she answered those interview questions (and actually, neither did I, having worked this out fairly recently based on empirical evidence of aforementioned wilting). Yay, Amanda, and thank you.
