Reasons why this is my dream career
I've always had a passion for animals since I helped my aunt at an animal shelter. I have also have a extreme love for medical careers, so what is a better combination then those two. I started watching surgical videos when I was at a young age which got me interested in medicine. Like most people who will gross out easily with blood and guts, I'm extremely fascinated. My parents told me that when I was younger I had a love for all animals and was always talking about how some day "I will save others". When I get older my main goal would be receiving my doctoral degree and have my medical licenses as well. I would also like to go to Connell University which is the number one best Veterinarian school in the nation. I also plan on going into human medical after many years in Veterinarian.
Over all the main reason I would love to become a vet is so I can spend each day doing a career I would love but more importantly I would be able to save animals lives.
