Ferocity Indeed

She named herself Ferocity when she turned three, and her parents were loath to disagree. Strong willed could be applied to other children, but defined as an archetype for Ferocity, who once decided to live in a tree for a week, built an igloo in the back yard out of shaved ice one summer, and spread milkweed seeds across the entire neighborhood to support the migration of Monarch Butterflies. Ferocity indeed, with a legacy and heritage to prove it, taking after her grandmother who insists on getting a tattoo every year, distills her own vodka, and as a teenager trekked on foot from the tip of South America to the Arctic Circle in Canada, averaging about 50 miles a day over the course of a year just so she could avoid winter.
