As the middle of the fall semester of my freshman year approaches, I am beginning to worry if everyone was right, and that I’ll be weaved out of the pre-veterinary track just like everybody else. But then I remind myself that success is achievable if one works hard enough, and I’ve got the motivation so I know I can thrive. I can’t let my midterm grades (which were on the lower side) influence me negatively to give up and pursue an easier career path. If you love something, don’t let it go. That goes for hobbies as well as people. I won’t let go.
