Ever since I was a small child I wanted to work with animals. I almost went straight into a veterinary medicine degree when I left school, but at the last minute I realised I wanted to study biology more broadly. I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2014 with a 2.i in Natural Sciences, specialising in Zoology. My first degree was fascinating and I don’t regret it for a moment, but I’ve now decided I need to go back to university and become a vet.
I currently work full time in the water industry, an opportunity I’m very grateful for but one I know isn’t for me long-term. I’m doing all of my work experience for returning to uni in holidays, weekends and evenings; I also put most of my paycheck away in the “vet school fund” each month, because there is no tuition fee loan for a second undergraduate degree. It may take me a while, but I’m determined to become a vet!
