Taking care of animals is my greatest passion in life; it's something that I grew up doing and it's something that I know will always be important to me. Throughout my childhood, going out to the barn served as a way for me to escape reality and relax. That still has not changed. I have found that there is something comforting about spending time with animals because they are purely innocent and place their trust in the fact that I will always be there to feed, water, and care for them. Besides teaching me the values of hard work, responsibility, and companionship at a young age, growing up on a farm has greatly impacted my future. Learning about and caring for animals is what motivates me. Creating a bond with an animal, especially livestock, requires a lot of time and dedication to learn each animal's unique personality. I cherish each of the bonds that I have formed with my cattle, as each one challenges me in different ways and teaches me new lessons. It is for this reason that I dream to become a large animal veterinarian; I want to be the person with the ability to keep these special bonds alive for other livestock owners.
