Those two weeks in Thailand were amazing and beyond what I expected. Our teachers, Ruth and Jordan, were helpful, patient, and taught us so much. Loop did a great job partnering these two ladies together. Not only were they awesome teachers, but they were also strangers turned into lifelong friends, along with the others girls in the Young Adult Vet group.
The classes taught us many basics of what goes on in the vet field and we were able to have hands on practice with the dogs and cats of ARK. At ENP, we worked closely with elephants following them around and doing diet studies. We were also able to do some chores, feed the elephants, bathe them, and work a little in their animal clinic.
The housing accommodations for both our week in Chiang Mai and ENP were great. The food options provided for us during our week in Chiang Mai were also great! There was a variety to choose from for our lunch breaks; I ate something different every day! At ENP, it was all vegetarian, but I still managed to eat something filling every single day.
Overall, this was an adventure I will never forget. If there is some advice I like to give people now, it is to take that leap and study abroad! You will not regret it!
