Experience with animals and own pets

I have a dog named Danger who is literally my best friend! I was in grade 3 with when we got him, and he has been with me through everything! I'm quite surprised myself that he has lived this long but I'm thankful of all the memories we have shared together. I also have cats, and as for them - they are very naughty! One who really stands out in particular is Piece Job – she really is a piece of work, but I have so much love for her!

Since childhood I have wanted to be a Veterinarian and this is still a dream of mine, but my current dream is perusing my love of Business Management. The well-being of animals is so dear to me, every time I see an injured dog or cat or any other animal my heart just breaks because I feel like if I had the opportunity to be a Vet I would do so much for the suffering animals around, especially in my particular community as there are no near animals clinic around.

I really hope the short essay about me captures you, because I would really love meeting pets and working with you guys! Kind Regards, Sibongile Matlala.
