Student President

Sara Abreu

Hello everyone,

My name is Sara and I come from beautiful Lisbon, Portugal, where I also got my veterinary degree. 

My first EAZWV Conference was in Vienna 2013, and it was such an eye opening experience! Something I always thought was a bit of a crazy dream turned into a possibility right there, and I was excited to become a part of this community. I answered the call for a “computer nerd” then, and have been part of the Student Section as the association's webmaster ever since. In these short years I have seen this association and this section grow so much, and I have myself finished my degree and presented my thesis on Gorilla Dietary Assessment, after a few months spent at Zoo Basel. I moved to the UK right after graduation to start an internship at the RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre and Cattery, and have been happily developing my clinical skills this past year, treating all kinds of english wild fauna.

As for the Student Section, after the excellent work done by the previous boards, I felt that I had enough experience on how this all works and was still driven to do more, so I applied for the President role. I'm very happy about the excellent team that was elected in Berlin and looking forward to work with this motivated group of under and post grads! 

If you have any questions or suggestions feel free to contact me, would be happy to hear from our membership!
