People have passions or dreams they wish to pursue, but life spares no effort in throwing barriers between them and their goals. However, persistence and hope ensure these barriers don’t get the last hooray. One Green Planet revealed the story of Faith Snapp, a legally blind Texas student who refused to let her disability get in the way of her dream. The student, who is overly in love with animals, wishes to pursue a career as a veterinarian. She was on cloud nine when she was recently accepted into the Texas Tech School of Veterinary Medicine. However, the journey hasn’t been a piece of cake.

Snapp was born prematurely with her twin brother and both faced the dilemma of visual impairment from an early age. While that brought a plethora of challenges, the young woman developed an intense love for animals via agricultural and farm work. Raising goats and horses with her family sowed the seeds of a budding passion for becoming a vet and assisting animals. Snapp had a guide dog, Prim, to accompany her and with the help of her beloved pet, she has been persistently paving through on her career journey. She recently posted a picture of herself at her University and called her accomplishment a blessing.

She said, “I want to say that all the glory goes to God. His plan is far greater than mine and I am so thankful to have an opportunity like this to continue to grow and love others along my journey! I also want to thank my family and friends who have supported me and pushed me to work hard to chase my dreams.” She further mentioned that her journey hadn’t been easy, but every hardship had surely been worth it. “Monday, I received the call that I have been accepted into the class of 2028 at Texas Tech School of Veterinary Medicine!! To say I am honored and thankful would be an understatement. I would not be standing here today without my wonderful support system,” Snapp wrote in her post.

Snapp is all set to achieve her dream but has not forgotten the help she has received and the assistance many like her need. She is an active part of the Animal Companion Club as the president, where she spreads awareness about disabilities and the need and relevance of guide dogs. Snapp credits much of her success to her dog Prim on her Instagram page (@primtheguidedog). In one of her recent posts, she shared a picture of her, along with Prim, expressing gratitude for her canine, who has stood by her side.



 

“I got Prim my freshman year and she was there when I got my first FFA Jacket. She went to every contest, banquet and everything in between. Job well done, pretty girl. Thank you for making my dreams come true with Texas FFA,” she wrote in a heartfelt caption. Snapp continues to look after her animals at home and is eager to begin her journey at the University. Her story inspires many that no challenge can overtake you as long as your passion and persistence to achieve something stay strong.
