Tania Chan

I'm Tania, a vet student at the University of Edinburgh. I'm originally from Hong Kong (a long way from my friends and family!) but I have absolutely enjoyed every moment of living and studying in Edinburgh. Upon graduation, I hope to be in a first opinion practice working with cats and dogs. Although, I do have a soft spot and increasing interest for rabbits, so I might try to explore that further... we'll see! In the meantime, I'll be studying for exams and trying to learn as much as possible on placements. When I am not doing either of those things, I enjoy dancing, cooking, and going out on long walks (Scottish weather permitting, of course).
