Aspiring student vet to head on African adventure

An aspiring vet is gearing up for an African adventure when she sets off for a three week trip to Ghana on Tuesday.

Cox Green School pupil, Madelaine Gosby, will be travelling to Kumasi in the south of the country where she will be working in a veterinary clinic.

The 17-year-old, who is head girl at her school in Highfield Lane in Maidenhead, will also be involved with working in rural regions vaccinating livestock and domestic animals against rabies.

"I am a little bit nervous but mostly excited," said Madelaine.

"I love working with animals and find it very rewarding."

The trip has been arranged by Projects Abroad which organises a variety of volunteering opportunities across the world.

During her trip, the year 12 pupil will be staying with a host family and getting to grips with a new culture.

"I think the experience will be great," added Madelaine who specifically chose the African country as her preferred destination.

"Ghana offered a vast amount of practical experience working with animals that I would not otherwise get the opportunity to work with in a completely new environment.

"I definitely wanted to go somewhere where I could support somewhere in need."
