Hi, my name is Kristen Jacobs! I am currently working to save some money for this veterinary volunteer trip but I would definitely appreciate all the help I can get. I am in the process of applying to veterinary school and am hoping to learn valuable skills that will help me to not only get into vet school, but to help in my career once I graduate. While I am in South Africa, I will be working with a variety of wildlife and domestic species, including animals in some local villages. The program helps underprivileged communities keep their animals healthy and safe through a non-profit clinic. That is the reason I love this program; they help people through helping their animals, the reason I chose to go into veterinary medicine in the first place. This program allows me to live out a dream of traveling abroad and working with animals. Thank you for taking the time to read about my travel plans!
