Hello, I am Stefan from Austria. I am 13 years old and I have been visiting my Aunt and Uncle in Dubai a few times. I like it there, it is a beautiful country and I have been to all seven Emirates. I love all animals and I have a pet snake. Her name is Lucy and she eats mice. We also have a dog called Ari, she is a lazy dog and likes food, she really eats a lot. In my spare time I go fishing but I do not kill the fish, I always release them. I just take photos and then I put them back in the water.

I always wanted to become a veterinarian so that I can help animals but now that I am older I have decided to find a way to make loads of money so that I can help even more animals. I hope it works. I will come to the UAE again next year and then I will help out at Umm Al Quwain Stray Animal Welfare and feed stray animals. It is very sad that so many pets get abandoned, this is not ok, pets are part of the family. I would never abandon my pets because I really love them.
