My 12-year-old daughter, who is in 6th grade, took this course using my account. Her regular studies were interrupted by the community quarantine imposed in our country. She seized this opportunity to pursue a subject that she was passionate about. Since her first rescued kitten a few years ago, my daughter has dreamt of becoming a veterinarian. She was extremely happy to take this course. She religiously spent her mornings attending her “classes,” which she would excitedly report about over lunch! I still recall her animated lecture about the heart of a fin whale! I extend my and my daughter’s gratitude for making this course available. You have made her dream of “matriculating” at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies come true! More power to you!
