I Am A Animal Lover

This is ME!!

Hello my name is Alana. I am a 15 year old African American, junior in high school. I was born in New York, raised in Virginia, and then moved back to New York when I was eleven. I have three sister and two brothers.  I am the youngest out of all of them.

Growing up I always was around animals. I don’t remember a time I was without an animal. I’ve had dogs, cats, birds, fish, ferrets, almost every house pet you can think of.

Being around animals made me think that I just can’t live without them.  So I always told myself that when I grow up I wanted to work with cats and dogs.

As I grew up, I started to grow an interest in wild animals.  I could remember times where I would go to the zoo and stare at the lions in fascination.  But because I was still very young, I didn’t really know what a zoologist was so I just stuck with working with smaller animals.

I could remember one time I was at my dad’s house, and I saw these adorable kittens, and all I wanted to do is help them.  But my sister wouldn’t let me, so I yelled at her and didn’t talk to her for weeks.

For years, I always told myself that if I didn’t become rich and famous from acting, I would be a vet.

By the time I was in 9th grade, I started looking into colleges that had a vet program.   By 10th grade, I finally found out what the people who worked with wild animals were called.  I eventually changed what I want to be to a zoologist or a zoo keeper, or  try to travel all around the world and help all the endangered animals.

Since animals fascinate me so much, I decided to make my blog about fascinating animals.
