I want to become a vet but since my mom hates animals and thinks they're dirty, how do I convince her?
I'm not saying how old I am, but I'll say that I'm planning for the future. I REALLY want to become a vet, but my mom wants me to become a Doctor. (I'm pretty sure I can become one if I want to) Anyways, she says that why mess with animals? They're dirty and smelly, but I'm an ANIMAL LOVER! So how do I convince her? *10 POINTS FOR BEST ANSWER! :)
