  by John Ryan


Some children of well-known people never emerge from their parents’ shadow. Bindi Irwin, daughter of world-famous “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, doesn’t have that problem. Although she was gifted with her father’s name and legacy, this talented young woman has earned her own place in the spotlight.

  Born in Queensland, Australia, in 1998, Bindi began appearing on TV with her father at the age of 2. By 2006 she was hosting a TV wildlife show for kids, Bindi the Jungle Girl. In September of that year, her father died in an encounter with a stingray. At his funeral, Bindi gave a speech she wrote herself. The 5,000 attendees gave her a standing ovation.
