I'm a Dutch veterinary student (BSc) and therefore vet-to-be. I'm proud to say that I was able to turn my passion into my profession and I'm very willing to share the information and knowledge I've obtained so far :) I love a good challenge and I very much enjoy trouble-shooting the many pets I encounter every day.
Besides my obvious passion for animals, I spend a great deal of time drawing or painting, playing guitar, travelling and of course caring for my many pets. I'm the proud owner of two crested gecko's, two guinea pigs, a hamster, a cat and quite a few sweet water fish (I basically set up my own personal zoo). In the past I've also owned bunnies and 33 (!) stick insects. If you're wondering if I could possibly want to own more pets: the answer will always be yes.
I'm a pretty restless person and I'm always looking to learn or try something new. Honestly, I'm a real adrenaline addict and I'm always looking for new ways to get that rush. This is basically the reason why I'm very much into extreme sports such as skydiving and motorcross. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to establish a friendship with someone who shares this wonderful trait (all of my friends appear to be afraid of heights).
As a future vet I will have to choose a group of animals to specialize in eventually. I will most likely specialize in your every-day fuzzy animals (cats, dogs and all) and I'm hoping to focus on either reptiles or wildlife. In order to find out which path I want to follow, I've spent a great amount of time volunteering and taking internships and will continue to expand my knowledge that way. Of course many trips are to be planned too! I'm dying to visit multiple countries in Africa, but I would love to visit south-east Asia as well. If it were up to me, I'd visit every country in the world but unfortunately my wallet has its limits for now :)
