Veterinary School Dreamin'
Organized by: Christina Colon
My name is Christina and I recently got accepted to Ross university veterinary school. It has been my dream to work as a veterinarian but a few life complications and hiccups during college derailed my plan...for the moment. My mother became unemployed and I had to focus my attention on helping my family and myself financially. I was undeterred and went back to school to finish prerequisite classes for veterinary school admissions. I've been working as a veterinary assistant at a busy practice in NYC the past 6 years. I love working with animals and helping to keep them healthy. Although I love my job, becoming a veterinarian is my ultimate goal. I applied to veterinary school this summer and the rest is history. I begin January 2016 and look forward to start of the next phase in my life however, the costs are exorbitant. I was well informed about the massive debt I would shoulder and have accepted that I will be in debt for pretty much the rest of my life. This is why I have decided to start a CrowdRise account. I don't have financial help, therefore, any help would mean so much to me. The donations as small or as large as they are will make such an impact. It will go towards books, supplies, living expenses and tuition. This is my life's dream and I would be devastated if finances will prevent me from attending veterinary school and becoming a veterinarian.
