Growing up Around Agriculture Essay
I believe everyone has been born to do something. I was born to be a veterinarian. People tell me that I will probably end up changing my degree choice “twenty seven times” before I even graduate form college. I believe otherwise. I have grown up on a farm with filled with adopted animals of all kinds- rabbits, pigeons, goats, frogs, dogs, chickens, cats, cattle, and an iguana.
Ever since I was seven I new I was born to become a veterinarian.
This past year I was hired to work at the veterinarian clinic in Bullard. Within one month I got to help de-claw a cat and watch many surgeries. I learned how to medicate animals without getting bit, give hydrotherapy, and many other things. My title was kennel attendant and I still tried to help and learn up front, in surgery, when I finished the kennel. I always watched for depressed animals especially the ones that went though surgery, because sometimes with out the tender care they needed they would not eat and lose weight.
Just recently I have been accepted to Texas A&M University I have also decided my degree choice will be biomedical science. With a biomedical science degree I have over fifty career choices I can go into. Also, this is my backup plan if I am not accepted into vet. School right away. The choices of careers range form agricultural economist, animal breeder, dentist, game manager, veterinarian assistant, and even zoologist. I have decided that what ever my career will be, it will be in agriculture and will deal with animals.
Animals are so interesting and tricky they can’t tell you what is wrong with them like people can. With animals you have to find out for yourself.
In the degree that I am seeking I know there will be a lot of science to take. Science has always come natural to me, possibly because you can actually see the product and touch it. I plan to become a veterinarian not just for the love of animals but for the science and knowledge also. The dissecting of animals has always been interesting to me.
It is a whole new world that I can wait to explore even more. It is amazing how God made living creatures. I just want to help keep them form getting sick and doctoring them when they do.
This scholarship would help my parents and I a lot. We have never been well off or rich. Financially, my parents say they will find a way.
I say I will to. My parents have done so much for me. The least I can do is gain scholarships to send me to college. I know my parent want so much to help send me to college, but how, they don’t have the fifteen thousand it takes every year to send me to Texas A&M, so I have to fined the way. Where there is a will there is a way. I will be the fist one in my immediate family and the first in twenty years of my extended family to go to college.
Graduating from Texas A&M is only the begging of my journey. My future depends a lot on scholarships and being that I have not received any yet, I hope this, Austin Bank, scholarship can be one that I do receive. .
