Experience with animals and own pets

Since I was a child, I have been a lover of animals. My parents ensured that I grew up surrounded by pets, mostly cats and dogs. As a result, I learnt what it was like to truly love and be loved by an animal.

Caring for them is just as much a gift to me as it is to them. If I was not so into fashion, I probably would have studied veterinary sciences but life had other plans! Today, I have two beautiful animals that are a part of my family- Pepper, a three-year-old black potbelly pig that and Mango, a six-month-old German Shepherd Dog Mix that I adopted in mid-2019.

Adopting both animals reinforced the "adopt don't shop" mantra in my life. I hope you allow me the privilege of sharing my love with your fur babies.

Additional notes: In the time that I have known Sophia, I have recognised her leadership potential. This means that she is both responsible for her work output, but also accountable for the choices that she makes in the process. Her dedication to learning is exemplary and I have witnessed the care she has shown in addressing the needs of others without compromising her values. I feel that both her innate leadership, her caring nature and potential to learn are excellent qualities in terms of creating opportunities to grow and having a stable foundation from which she will be able to hold the values of the StudentCo Pet Sitters brand high.
