Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.

I’m officially done with college. I graduated with two degrees: Acting and Biology, on Friday. I watched all of my friends in the theatre department graduate on Saturday (stupid administrative stuff prevented me from graduating with my friends that are like family). And now I’m back at home, trying to sort out my life. I’m going to try pushing the relaxation period of a week, but that it highly unlikely, knowing my mother.
Good news is that I have an audition. It’s for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - which I’ve done before, but it was 4 years ago and also the first show I ever acted in. It’s in Palatine, so it’s close and it will be fun no matter what.
It sort of seems surreal that the next phase of my life has already begun.
I wish people wouldn’t just see me as the Asian girl who beats everyone up, or the Asian girl with no emotion. People see Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock in a romantic comedy, but not me. You add race to it, and it became, ‘Well she’s too Asian’, or ‘She’s too American’. I kind of got pushed out of both categories. It’s a very strange place to be. You’re not Asian enough and then you’re not American enough.
