As a little girl, I saw my Father play with street dogs and indulge in wildlife photography. We spent many evenings together watching National Geographic and Animal Planet programs. I was thrilled to walk in the Zoos, Aquariums, and Dolphinariums across Asia, Russia, Europe, and the USA. We saw Dr. Dolittle series and The War Horse movies together, read books written by James Herriot, enjoyed TV shows starring Chris Brown and Cesar Millan. I was inspired by Dr. Noel FitzDpatrick in “The Bionic Vet” series on Netflix. I laughed, cried, marveled through these experiences and unknowingly created a path for myself deep in my heart.
I believe that every animal has a story to tell – of abandonment, recuse and love. With my writing and my photographs, I intend to reveal to the world these precious stories. With the knowledge I would gain as a veterinarian, I would not only be able to tell the story of every animal I meet, but also the irreplaceable human-animal bond.
