The relationship between animals and humans have long been a source of healing and compassions for many years. As a student in pre-veterinary studies, my goal in life is make a difference in the treatment of equines while helping to rehabilitate people with spinal injuries. As a freshman in college, I begin my long journey of becoming a veterinarian who specializes in equine medicine. After graduating, I would like to venture my career into using rehabilitate horses to help humans who also need rehabilitation. It has been know for years that humans respond well to animal therapy, and by using horses to help people with serious injuries, I believe it will make a huge difference in the lives of both species. A friend of mine recently suffered a terrible spinal injury and is now receiving horse therapy to help him build muscle and to gain balance and control of his body. He has already come a long way, but not many facilities have this type of therapy. I want to be someone who makes a difference in the lives of others and paying for college is not an option my parents can help me with. But given the opportunity, I will succeed and I will make a difference in this world.
