Why do I deserve to win the iPad2?
I am a full time student working on my bachelor of science in Animal Science/ Pre-Vet. I also work part-time at a local veterinary clinic. I would like the iPad2 as a reward for all my hard work.
1. How did you go about getting all of your votes? What did you do that helped the most (Facebook, Emails, etc)?
I posted the link to vote for me on my Facebook as well as several of my other friends and family. I also posted my link around campus (since I am a college student). I was also able to get a couple of my class lists which had emails on it. The thing that helped me the most was being able to access my class lists.
2. What brand of uniform do you enjoy wearing most at work?
My favorite brand is Happy Scrubs. The prints are really cute and most of them are animal related which fits my job perfectly.
3. What is your favorite thing about the veterinary industry/what made you want to pursue this?
My favorite thing about the veterinary industry is just getting to interact with the animals. Animals are my passion and that pushed me to work toward becoming a veterinarian.
4. What advice would you give to someone who wants to go into veterinary field?
The advice I would give to anyone who wants to go into the veterinary field, is to go shadow, internship, or work at a vet clinic first. There are quite a few situations where you think you might be able to handle but until you are actually been there you will never know.
