M.S. Student

Pursuing a field that aligns with my passion and interests and holds great importance and meaning is crucial when determining my major. For this reason, I have chosen to pursue a Master's degree in nutrition specializing in equine nutrition. My decision to focus on nutrition in horses stems from my deep love and appreciation for these magnificent creatures, combined with a strong desire to contribute to their well-being and performance. Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to horses. Their beauty, grace, and power captivated me, and I knew I wanted to make a difference in their lives. However, I soon realized that proper nutrition is crucial to their overall health and performance. This realization led me to explore the field of equine nutrition further and eventually solidify my decision to pursue a Master's degree in this area.
