The girl born in Namibia, lived with her mom and dad as they traveled through Africa. It was since then she started her life surrounded by animals befriending with them! “Her middle name is Okanti which means mongoose or meerkat and also happens to be the only animal to ever have bitten her.” Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré is presently 27 years old girl and she is pursuing a degree in cinema.
