Occupation: University student, scientist-in-training, and blogger
Residence: Guelph, Ontario, Canada
Background: Jacob was born and raised on Manitoulin Island, a sparse, rural community in scenic Northern Ontario. Animals were always a part of his life. As a child, he found entertainment watching wild birds, chickens, beef cattle, and even insects go about their daily lives. At the age of 11, Jacob became fascinated with the responsible management of agricultural animals. This interest eventually brought him to the University of Guelph, where he now divides his time between animal biology coursework and hands-on experience with veterinarians and animal researchers.
Jacob was raised with a respect for the value of good writing. He enjoys writing as a form of self-expression, as periodic relief from a busy schedule, and as a medium to present his ideas.Photo by Sarah Milinkovich
