Being a wildlife conservationist is more than a love or a passion of mine. I do not have a singular desire to make the world a better place for animals; I want to make the world a better place for all inhabitants. Education is how we make the world a more compassionate place. College is discernibly part of my future, as I will be getting my doctorate in zoology. Titles are of little consequence to me; my doctorate is vital because it shows that I am dedicated to my field, that I have had an extensive education on the topic and that I am capable of working in an array of situations.
Everyone says that they want to change the world, until they realize the impracticality of that task. I want to change the world but I know that it is impossible for a single person to accomplish alone. Therefore I will settle for altering the way just a few people see the world. Change does not happen overnight; it is a slow and arduous task that can take decades, even centuries to accomplish. If I possess the ability to change the way just a few people view conservationism, then they would change just a few more views and so on and so forth until it was just another norm of society. People are beginning to see the value in conservationism, but there are still not enough to make a real difference. I will be apart of that difference.
