Elizabeth Clarke: I grew up in sort of like a hobby farm in Sydney. So I had grew up with so many horses about 12 horses, you know, 4 dogs, and my dad raised pigeons and chickens, so I grew up with so many animals. But yeah, most like most of us, you know, high school teachers said, you know, you're never gonna get into med school. So I kind of put that on hold for a bit. And then after high school, I went to Africa for 3 months. Then I remember, I was in like, the middle of the bush, and they were doing surgery on a cheetah. And I just remember sitting there going, Yes, I need to do this.
