I studied occupational therapy to promote client-centered, holistic and motivated care.
I always wanted to be in the health profession. I want to really impact my patients and help them in transition from physical/mental impairment to independently partake in activities of daily living.
So I studied occupational therapy, not only to make a difference in the lives of my clients, but to promote client-centered, holistic and motivated care. I want my clients to be motivated to work hard so that they can become independent in everything they do
I'm from the Bahamas. Being in a different country can be difficult. I struggled with not having any family around me, but quickly overcame this by developing a family of my own. I made my friends and professors my family.
I remember being like a withered seed, who was timid and soft-spoken. Now I have blossomed into a beautiful sunflower, beaming with great leadership skills, determination and motivated to impact the world!
