In a few short hours I will be boarding my plane to head to Belize for the next four weeks. During that time I am going to be participating in the Large Animal Veterinary Practice in the Tropics and the Wildlife Health, Ecology and Conservation courses. I have spent the last 48 hours preparing for this trip, since my semester only just ended a few short days ago. I am currently physical, mentally, and emotionally exhausted but beyond excited to be heading to Belize. Before I transferred to Rutgers I knew about the CELA program and was really interested in attending. I am so grateful that I have been given the SEBS scholarship and this incredible opportunity. I am really hoping the upcoming weeks will be a life changing experience and am looking forward for what it brings.
