Ever since I was a young girl, all I have ever wanted to do is practice veterinary medicine. I had no Plan B, no second option. This was the only option, it is the only dream. I always knew that if I could take in every ailing creature, be it wild or domestic, and help them heal and live a full and happy life, I, too, would know happiness. I would make the difference in not just the animals’ lives, but also in the lives of their owners and in the ecosystem, which relies on the presence of all natural species in order to thrive. Neutering and spaying helps control the stray population, opossums and snakes maintain the small animal population, and small animals lower the insect population and increase pollination. We need all of these animals for a balanced ecosystem. To help with this, it is crucial that I be accepted into veterinary school and make the grades and graduate so that I can eventually open my own veterinary practice. To begin this dream, though, I must first obtain a bachelor’s in biology. That is the initial step, and the step that I am currently taking. I want to spend the rest of my life changing and protecting the natural world one animal at a time.
