Who am I?

I am 21 years.

I live in a small town close to Valletta, Malta's historical capital city: A city built by gentlemen for gentlemen. I am currently following a Bachelors' Degree in Animal Mangement and Veterinary Nursing at the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology (MCAST): I am in my second and final year of this course that will lead to a BTEC certificate. I enjoy working with animals, mostly with horses and dogs. For the past 10 years I carried out voluntary work at a horse rescue association.

I seek to continously upgrade my skills and knowledge in animal management. During all my trips abroad, I seek to visit zoo's, wildlife centres and equestrian organisations to further my knowledge. .

Recently, I have taken it upon myself to learn computer programming and web design to aquire new skills. In this I have found great support from my boyfriend who is a graduate in ICT administration from Nooderpoort College, The Netherlands.

My Systems of Knowledge Project

"Systems of Knowledge (SOK) was intended to prepare students for higher education by serving as stimulus for a critical appreciation of culture within an interdisciplinary programme premised on the breaking down of departmental borders and specialisation.


The present programme of the MatSec Syllabus of Systems of Knowledge covers the following 4 Modules:

  • Module 1: Democratic values and Citizenship
  • Module 2: Aesthetic values, Art and Culture
  • Module 3: Scientific values and Technology
  • Module 4: Sustainable Development and Environment"

My 2-year Systems of Knowledge project, focused on equine nutrition. My project consisted of voluntary work and hands-on experience working with horses at a horse rescue association; observing feed patterns; research; teamwork and handling emergencies in unpredictable situations.
