As long as I can remember, I've always been afraid of sharks. Every time I'd jumped into the ocean, my mind would endlessly wrap around the idea that a shark could attack me. Thanks, Jaws! While most of us would swim the farthest away from any shark, my guest on today's episode actually enjoy spending every minute she can swimming with them.

The Shark Girl

"We live in a world where society tells us what we should do. I was told I should go to school and get a degree in marine biology, and do this and do that, and I just like doing the opposite of what people tell me. So I honestly think the more people tell you that you can’t succeed, they're inspiring you." - Madison

Madison's work has exposed governments who are killing sharks illegally and educated the masses on the shark fin trade multi-million dollar industry.
