I am 44 years old and work as a psychiatric nurse. When I was 18 I applied to veterinary school and was offered a place at the Royal Veterinary college if I achieved 3 A grades. I achieved 4 B grades and was not accepted. I was devastated.
as a graduate I am responsible for paying my vet school fees which amount to 45k. I feel I have so much to offer the profession and have developed good communication skills in my current role which are useful as every pet or farm animal has an owner! I have been told by one vet school that they would be interested in my skills in psychiatry due to the rate of stress and suicide in the veterinary profession. Finally I have been suffering with an illness since I was aged 19 but I never would let that hold me back. Any amount of money you can spare would be so appreciated to fulfill my lifelong dream.
I currently live with Ellie my 15 year old siamese, Hettie my 1 yr old tripaw - 3 legs siamese and my 3 hens Florence, Blossom and Edie.
