I come from a very small place in Eastern Europe, so my whole life has kind of been one big fight to live my dream against all odds. But I think it's hard to be a human in general — we all have our own struggles and things to overcome. That's why it's so important to always have compassion.



As young West Point cadets, our motto was 'duty, honor, country'. But it was in the field, from the rice paddies of Southeast Asia to the sands of the Middle East, that I learned that motto's fullest meaning.

For me, being a part of the ASPCA is a great way to tie in my love for animals and my love for New York City. Whether it's fighting puppy mills or working with the NYPD to prosecute people who abuse animals or breaking up fight rings, it's an incredible part of my city life.

Georgina Bloomberg
