  • Description

    My name is Laura and I'm a 25 years old veterinary medicine student from Switzerland.
    I grew up in a small village in the Romansh speaking part of Grisons (East Switzerland) and I'm now living and studying in Zurich. I'm fluent in Romansh, German and English but not so much in Italian and French. But thanks to my mother tongue Romansh (latin language) I do unterstand more Italian and French than I talk. But currently I'm learning Italian at the university to improve my Italian speaking skills.
    Besides my veterinary studies I'm also working part time at the small animal hospital at the emergency reception, helping out taking care of some sheep (shearing, hoof care...) or go walking with dogs from the animal shelter. I just enjoy spending time with animals :)
    I am eager to learn about different cultures and help people in their everyday life.
