There comes a time when you question what you want to do in life and it is not forever that you will remain in high school, but you will graduate and be awarded the freedom you have been yearning for. You will make a decision whether you want to attend college or university and take on a career. I never had one of these moments. I was set the moment I turned six. As a young girl it was my environment and the nature around me that defined myself. Instead of playing in the neighborhood like most people, I would go into the forest climb trees, catch frogs or hunt for snakes. I was content and I continued growing up in the forest.
I was fourteen when I came across a forest path, the cry of a small woodland animal startled me. It resembled to that of a small lamb. Veering off the path, I was curious and decided to take a look. What I saw was a baby deer not even a week old, but I was more concerned with the blood that clotted the ground. I grew closer to the tiny deer with careful movements. His leg was trapped in between two rocks but that is not where the blood had come from. Where had it come from? I still do not know but I assumed the mother had been injured or possibly killed by coyotes. I picked up the fawn and took it back to my house where we had phoned the SPCA. They took it in but I still do not know what happened after that. Whether it was released after it had been examined or perhaps weaned and then let go, but at that moment I knew for sure what I wanted to be. I wanted to be a veterinarian technician, and I wanted to help any animal that needed it. This is the moment that defined me.
