"I’ll be honest, the first year was the hardest for me. You have to adjust to living in a different place. You can get homesick. But then people who started as strangers become your new family, and they understand what you're going through like no one at home. Now that I look back, I wouldn't have traded those 2 1/2 years for the world. I've grown so much as a person and have a unique skillset I feel will only help me become a better veterinarian."
