Why did you choose to pursue physical therapy? Becoming a physical therapist has been a goal that I hope to achieve in the future. This goal formed during my sophomore year in high school. I have been a dancer for approximately 16 years. During my sophomore year, I, unfortunately, got injured while dancing. My doctor referred me to a physical therapist so I could get the proper treatment to recover. After being exposed to physical therapy, I knew that this was what I wanted to pursue.
Growing up, I never really thought of going into the medical field. Once I was introduced to physical therapy, I was immediately interested. What really interested me in becoming a physical therapist was the fact that I get to make a difference in many people’s lives. I will have the ability to help patients function safely by giving them helpful treatment techniques. I will also be able to inform them how to take care of their bodies to prevent further injuries from happening.

What physical therapy school(s) do you hope to attend? Samuel Merritt University, University of St. Augustine, Loma Linda University, Western University

Why did you choose to pursue physical therapy? I’ve always known that I wanted to help others and I realized that I wanted to do that in a more holistic setting. Physical therapy attracted me because of the process that it takes to help heal others and understanding the mechanics involved. Whenever I was injured I wanted to know for myself the reasons for these body mechanics and I want to be able to share this same knowledge to others.
