Welcome to 2013, the next month is going to either make or break my dream of becoming a vet as in the next 44 days I need to raise over £2000 for tuition for my next semester of vet school. However if all goes to plan, here are the goals I am working towards…
83 Monthly Sponsors giving £10
Over the past semester I have found it extremely stressful fundraising at the same time as trying to study. In my second year I will have a minimum of 42 hours of lectures and practicals a week in addition to clinical placements. The only way this is going work is if I can focus on my studies, so I am looking to find regular monthly sponsors to give just 33p a day so I do not have this stress. Currently I have just 9 monthly sponsors.
To rock my exams with A or B (80%+ grades)
I am in vet school so I am trying to make sure that I make the best of my time here, every spare second goes to learning and additional reading as its no good being just average. I have so many people believing in me that I can go the extra mile!
To increase amount of “A Close Look…” articles
I recently added a new category to the Vet School Diary for articles looking at specific areas or topics that are important to pet owners and explain common things and answer general questions that I come across. I decided to do this as reading back on some of my diary entries a few step into the scientific relm a little too far to be understood as light reading. The first of these articles was on the truth about chocolate and dogs.
To continue studying to ensure that I am the vet my supporters deserve
This time next year if I remain in Vet School I will be starting general surgery and anesthesiology. This means that everything I have learnt so far and will learn this year will be used to help me directly work with animals. I will continue to push myself to be the best I can be!
I still have over £2000 to raise for tuition due in February, if you can help please sponsor a vet student even if it is just £1/month, it will make the difference to animals like this stray kitten for years to come!
