Aleksandra Orbeck is an actress, adventurer, filmmaker, songbird and activist, who has fought hunters and poachers to protect wildlife, walked 1490 km across Namibia, and worked side by side with one of the world's oldest indigenous peoples - the San people in Namibia, for more than ten years.
When Aleks was 15, she moved to Paris and NYC to work as a model and study method acting.
But at 18 years old, after being held at gun point in NYC, she decided to make a drastic change. She went to Namibia to work with wild animals and spent a few years caring for lions and leopards. She later started the organisation Nanofasa in Namibia working alongside with the San people to safeguard their rights and give them a platform to speak to the world about nature and help cure the poverty of heart in the western world.
When she is not working to preserve nature, animals or walking across countries in Africa, she works as an actress, motivational speaker and filmmaker. She is on a mission to create a global warming of hearts, because she belives that if people feel better, nature heals better.
