Sometimes you have to lose everything to find yourself.
Ondine is a lifelong animal advocate, and is passionate about promoting respect and compassion for all creatures. In 2004, she and her father, Brian Sherman AM, founded Voiceless; the organisation is now one of Australia's leading animal protection groups. And Ondine's social-media platform, Franimals, has become a popular community for animal-loving teens across the globe.
Ondine's first book, The Miracle of Love, was published in 2013 and is an intimate account of her experiences as the mother of beautiful identical twin boys who have a rare genetic disorder. Ondine's journey with her boys has ultimately led to love, hope and acceptance.
Ondine, who grew up in Sydney, now lives in Tel Aviv with her husband and three children. Her three mischievous street cats, two loyal dogs and a sweet ex-battery chicken all keep her extraordinarily entertained.
