Belinda is a junior who is double majoring in biology and Spanish. She is interested in going into equine or wildlife medicine. As of right now, she does not own any animals in her home in New York, but she works with a bunch of wolves and racehorses that are basically her responsibility. Hence, her spirit animal is a wolf.

Despite the variety of pets he has, his spirit animal is the incomparable howler monkey,

For anyone dealing with the stressful summer internship process and looking for ways to gain experience in veterinary medicine, take a look at the Safari4u Veterinary Program, a veterinary volunteer program in South Africa. The program is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, offering volunteers opportunities to work with large, small, and exotic animals, explore various fields in veterinary medicine, gain clinical skills that are difficult to practice in the U.S., help animals in disadvantaged communities, and travel to an exotic country.
