My name is Serena. I am from Malaysia and I am a aspiring future vet currently studying as an international student in New Zealand. I have enjoyed every single second of my time here in New Zealand and am proud of my studies and achieving new heights. I am very fortunate to have my family funding for my studies till I graduate, however with just 3 more years to go, I realised that my passion for exotic and wildlife animals grew stronger, and this is a field with limited funds and scope. I wish to go to Africa for a wildlife volunteering programme during my studies and when I graduate, I would like to further my studies in the U.S. and focus on specialising exotic animals and doing internships. In the meantime, I will be helping out with wildlife and conservation groups as well as volunteering in zoos in New Zealand and my home, Malaysia. All these requires a large amount of funds in terms of flights, accomodation and living costs.
The funds will be put towards the cost of participating student programme as mentioned above. I appreciate every single cent that will be given. Thank you.
