Aga Galej is a third-year veterinary student at the University of Pennsylvania. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Yale University in 2017. During college, she volunteered her time in South Africa, the Galapagos Islands, and Belize where she became deeply interested in international wildlife and conservation medicine and sparking her desire to become a veterinarian. Aside from her veterinary interests, she has a passion for education, photography, and most of all, travel. She is well on her way to her goal of at least 100 countries, having just made it to number 44 last year. She plans to pursue wildlife medicine in some capacity after vet school, but has yet to decide in what way.
