She may be only 19 years old, but Bindi Irwin feels she’s lived “10 lives in one lifetime,” and is ready to immortalise those lives in a new memoir. Bindi, the only daughter of the late, great Steve Irwin, made the announcement yesterday to News Corp, revealing the book is near completion.
“I am writing a book, and it’s one of those things, you are writing, and you think you are in the right space, but then you rewrite the whole thing,” she said.
“The book is about my journey, my journey growing up at Australia Zoo and travelling around the world with our conservation work […] Life is an adventure, that is my life.”
The memoir will undoubtedly discuss the hardships she faced in the wake of her dad’s sudden, tragic death – a topic she has never shied away from, wanting to keep his legacy alive.
Just over a week ago, on Father’s Day, Bindi shared a heartfelt tribute to Steve.
“Life is always changing and evolving and I’ll always be thankful that I learned so much from my dad,” she wrote. “He taught me to treat every being on Earth the way you would wish to be treated. From the tiny ants to the enormous elephants.”
“We are all connected and must respect each other to live in true harmony. I’ll forever be thankful to have had these values passed on to me. Happy Australian Father’s Day.”
