Bio

I don't want to become a Veterinarian because of the salary that I will earn. I want to become a Veterinarian, because I want to learn and discover new ways of helping animals. I don't want to follow an educational system where I am taught to be a worker first and an activist last. I don't want to follow a political system that kills creativity and that teaches us how to become robots. I want to be myself without having to double think if I will be judged by my appearance, language, and ideas. I want to be happy and be excited to learn instead of making every excuse to not go to class that morning. I want to be able to wake up each day thinking of ways to improve our world for the better instead of waking up each day wondering when things will start to change. I want to be that change. I want to contribute to this world in a positive way. I want to leave a world to my children where they are able to see a glorious life filled with happiness and hope. Obtaining a degree is no longer enough, and I am not sure if I even want to continue in a system that pushes you down instead of helping you think outside the box. I have so many doubts and maybe this is what being in college is suppose to do to those who want more in life, but at this point I am not sure where to even go.
