Thank you for selecting me for this generous scholarship. This scholarship will be extremely helpful in advancing my education and career in the future. The career path I have picked is long and hard, but this scholarship will make achieving my goals that much easier.
After graduation, I will become a production animal medicine veterinarian, specializing is swine medicine. I would like to work in rural Minnesota at a clinic that promotes innovation, scientific curiosity, and the well-being of livestock. With the goal of bettering ourselves as an industry, I will use my knowledge and experiences to create a wide-reaching impact on the food animal industry, while helping the communities I serve. Furthermore, I would like to get involved with public health and policy work at a state or national level in order to create broader change.
