The place I decided to carry out my job shadowing experience is at Select Physical Therapy. During my time there, I decided to shadow an Occupational therapist who specialized in hand therapy. I wanted to shadow an Occupational Therapist because at the time, I was interested in becoming an Occupational Therapist and I wanted to see if this is really the career path I wanted to take. At first when I started my job shadowing experience, I was a little nervous since I was not quite sure what I was supposed to be doing since I have not shadowed a place before. The first day of my job shadowing experience I was not quite sure what to do since the only thing my mentor made me do is replace bedding and towels, and occasionally, ice packs of various
On a regular basis, to stay fit and healthy, I would research healthier alternatives, exercise programs and preventative measures. Then in turn I would relay this new found information to family, friends and co-workers. I found great satisfaction when friends and family would heed my advice and actually see improvements in themselves. It was in that moment that I had an epiphany: this whole time I was going through the motions of studying to eventually become a physical therapist, subconsciously knowing that I was not truly
In the essay “Working at Wendy’s,” Joey Franklin states, “I only applied here because I knew I would get hired, says Sara the first night I work with her.” This situation related to my experience when I am hunting the job. In that time, I do not care what my job is as long as I realized that I need to help my family to pay my tuition fees and to other expenses. However, on the first day of my job I am not sure how to associate with another employee and to communicate to the customer because I am
Being born and raised in St. Paul, St. Catherine University is located in a very familiar and stimulating environment for me. I want to attend St. Catherine University not only for their outstanding and rigorous course load, but also the location of St. Catherine University will allow me to work at home. Attending this university will not only allow me to become a student for the physical therapy program, but also fulfill my responsibilities and duties that I have back at home. Also being born and raised in St. Paul, I want to be able to stay connected with my community by being actively involved throughout the neighborhood. My brother’s diagnoses have brought challenges for my family, but at an early stage in my life it has impacted the way I value helping others.
Physical Therapists are individuals that help their patients diminish pain and regain mobility, yet it means so much more. For me, becoming a Physical Therapist means I get to take part in enhancing a person’s life and seeing growth and change in their future. I get to use every single day what I have observed numerous times. I will experience so much from their gains; I will watch them push their self, break barriers, and achieve goals. While observing as an undergraduate, I have been able to help touch lives by helping and educating those who need it and those who want the change for a better, healthy lifestyle.
Hi Matt, this is Logan Sanders. After completing the preliminary Residential Assistant training I was not placed in a position. However, I was told by Shannon Jolley that "you are the very first person on our alternates’ list and will likely be awarded a position, even in the next few weeks". I received this email in early March, and understand that it I was not guaranteed a position. Regardless, I wanted to make contact to say that I am still interested in taking a position if one becomes available.
This process of understanding who I am, allowed me to realise that I want to become a clinical psychologist. I developed a clear plan for my volunteer and work experiences and how this has contributed to my skill level. I realised that I wanted to become a clinical psychologist because I want to focus on making effective connections and establish a professional relationship with my future clients. I hope that by establishing a professional connection with my client I would be able to help them with their mental health problems. I wanted to use my ideologies to determine my future direction and I want to keep it aligned with my goals.

There are always people and businesses looking for help, and it is usually easy to find a way to help, especially when you are in FBLA. When Ms. Mirabal told the class about our community service project, I was excited because I never really volunteered before. Becoming involved in community service provided me with
In my future profession I familiarize myself to the utilitarian code of ethics. This code is a situational code which means that the decision made depends on the situation on hand. Also, it relates that the best decision is where the consequences maximize happiness for the greater number. As a future medical doctor, it 's my duty to respond to my patients needs and make them feel better, make them happy. I do want to create my own practice and provide my service to my community.
