Growing up, the most frequently asked question was “What are you going to be when you grow up?” And I, a big dreamer, always chose something that involved working with animals; a Marine Biologist, Zoologist, or even a Veterinarian. However, I became irresponsible, unbothered, and unmotivated during my elementary school days. The more tests I failed, the more I thought homework was useless. The more my parents lectured me about playing video games, the later I stayed up playing. Going into high school regretting my lost years, I learned to work with my limits in education and not give up on my interest in working with animals.
Present me thanks my old self for the stressful and rewarding journey of finding an occupation that fits my values and interests. Being constantly spoiled with encouragement and support, I have grown to not take advantage of opportunities and to acknowledge my challenges. Now, when being asked, “What are you working as?” I can confidently say, “a Veterinary Assistant.”
