Hi there! Thanks for visiting my crowdrise page! I'm sure you're eager to donate, but first, let me tell you a bit about myself.
I'm a first year veterinary student at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), which is in Guelph, Canada. I'm from Baden, Ontario which is a small town near Kitchener. For those of you not familiar with southwestern Ontario... yes I am close to Toronto. I've worked mostly with small animals, but I am one of those vet students that doesn't have an idea yet of what species I'd like to work with when I enter the real world - which is why I'm open to trying anything.
I first heard about RAVS at a lunch-time presentation at school by some 4th year students who had gone on previous trips. The first thing I thought was "wow that sounds tough.... but so awesome." Since then I couldn't get it off my mind! Past summers have been spent like any aspiring vet student... working with animals, volunteering, studying for the MCAT, all for a well-rounded application. I've never been on a vet-related volunteer trip and I see no better way to spend some of my first summer as a real-life-actual vet student than going on this trip to help such an amazing cause.
I'm sure you're probably wondering when this ramble is going to end... soon, I promise.
If you want more information about what the heck this RAVS trip is all about... you can check out the FAQ page on their website HERE: http://www.ruralareavet.org/about_FAQ.php
And if you're interested in what I'm up to on a regular basis, I am a twitter user and lover, find me here https://twitter.com/SFinnDVMstudent
So if you're a relative, friend, classmate, teacher, random facebook acquaintance or twitter follower THANK YOU for donating. I mean it. You rock.
