Why did you choose to pursue physical therapy? I chose to pursue a career in physical therapy because one of my missions is to assist other. Physical therapy is a way for me to heal or help those that suffer from injuries or disabilities. I experienced an incident a while ago while I was training for my martial arts competition and physical therapy helped me recover and return to training. That made a difference in my life and has allowed me to continue participating in the sports I enjoy playing. At first, I was hesitant as to whether Kinesiology was the right major for me but now that I am involved in the club and taking classes for the major, I don’t see myself having any other major but Kinesiology and now I am confident that I made the right choice.

What specialties are you interested in? Pediatrics
