Throughout the 2 weeks of small animal rotation in Healing Rooms, despite the fact that I should be impressing my attending veterinarians that I'm a competent veterinary student, I somehow manage to impress them with my language mastery instead.
As for Mandarin, there are Chinese PRC customers who are here as foreign students coming by our doorsteps for treatment. Being one of those who had the background, I became the interpreter.
As of English, an attending vet who was my senior before he graduated, too applauded my posts on various issues in the faculty group, stating that he'd wish he could write like me.
I am pretty flattered because its not easy to get applaud like that, let alone a working veterinarian in a professional practice.
I'm a Leo, I advance by applauds and accomplishment.
A simple gesture like they do in the clinic would at least allow me to know I'm working towards a right direction.
Unlike other places, which prefer spartan training and putting students down; even though it was for the betterment of the students.
