Bindi Irwin; best female talent

Terri and Bindi Irwin

BINDI Irwin has picked up a Logie for best female talent, dedicating the award to her mum, Terri, and dad, the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin. At just nine-years-old, Bindi edged out competitors including Home and Away’ s Charlotte Best and Neighbour ’s Adelaide Kane for her ABC program Bindi: The Jungle Girl. She was very excited and could not believe it. She accepted the gong at Melbourne’s Crown Entertainment Complex. She dedicated this to her mum and dad, and she would also like to thank everybody out there who helped to watch Bindi: the Jungle Girl. She also thanked John Stainton, who has helped her all the way through. Terri Irwin said she’s so proud of her daughter Bindi’ s success, saying she was a role model to other kids. Bindi is a sincere person who wants to teach through the medium of television, it gives Terri real hope that they are now focusing on people who are making the world a better place and have a real social awareness. “That’s something I think Bindi can be a real role model to other kids who are starting to look outside of their own personal needs and wanting to know how to fix the planet. Bindi will continue with that for the rest of her life and Terri is very proud of her.Terri Irwin also said she was confident Bindi was living a happy child’s life.Bindi is home-schooled by her mother and a tutor.”Seeing her here tonight is like seeing a child at church, they’re in their Sunday best and they’re not allowed to get it dirty but it doesn’t mean the rest of the week they won’t play hard,”Irwin said of her daughter. Going to the Logies is not a normal weekend for Bindi. This is certainly a tremendous blessing.”
