Jahzara the Princess: Black Band Left Wing


If you have days that you feel like a princess: holidays, weddings, birthdays, special occasions; you will be able to relate to “Jahzara”. Hatched on 22 May 2007, “Jahzara” came to the Academy in October of that same year. Appropriately called”Jahzara”, her name means “blessed princess” and the name is of African origin. If you ever watch the penguin feeds, you will notice one penguin that is picked up to feed. That is “Jahzara”. She is placed either in the palm of my hand or on my leg and waits until the fish is perfectly placed in her mouth until she will eat. Her princess-like nature has me trained well, I am servant to her needs.-Pamela Schaller
