My interest in zebras has never amounted to much more than a passing fancy best satiated by occasional trips to the zoo or chance encounters with Madagascar while channel surfing.

Amusing, but that’s where my interest fades.

As an adult, that same sense of pride still exists, and I’m lucky enough to experience it on a yearly basis as part of Cherokee Nation Businesses’ winning communications team.
