Ever since I was a little girl I always had a huge passion for animals. But becoming a veterinarian wasn't my first choice. I always dreamed of becoming an Artist because it interested me in a lot of ways. Being creative was something I loved to do! Finally, I made my final decision in becoming a vet. Since the day I witnessed my dog getting hit by a car, it was an awful feeling not knowing what to do to save his life. He passed away that same day and ever since I knew I was determined to study how to save an animal's life.
