I want the opportunity to provide support to people, help them gain independence and watch them grow more confident in their own ability. I want to be part of such a rewarding career. I feel that the subjects I have studied have provided me with a good foundation of skills and knowledge that I will use on a daily basis as Occupational therapist. In Biology I learned about the human body on a physical level. I found learning how the body works to be fascinating and I look forward to expanding my knowledge even more with this course.
Wilkerson writes about George, she says, “George had an enlarged heart and had already suffered two heart attacks” (2010, pg 448). Ida Mae was away when George passed, Wilkerson writes in Ida Mae’s memory, Ida Mae remembers, “The doctors said he’s never pull out of another one” (2010, pg 449). Ida Mae referring to a heart attack, she did not know leaving that weekend it would be the last time she saw her husband. With the loss of George, Ida Mae had to find her new role in her family and the new responsibilities she would take on. Unlike Robert, Ida Mae was able to hold herself together, but the loss did take a toll on her.
He was one of my first friends and my first role model. We lost him last year due to lung cancer. Through the journey of us trying to get him better he was so calm and accepting.

This elder had a small group. The mission of that small group was to go out praying with the sick people, visiting those who do not come to church making sure that they were well, provided bible study for those who wanted to know about God, and lastly we had time to socialize with each other. Elder Medi had help me in the continuing of the spiritual journey that I started in Haiti. He taught me how to preach, how to pray, how to do visitation, and how to do Bible study. He had played a wonderful role in my spiritual life.
My personal characteristics, experiences, and professional and personal goals both align with those promoted by the National Academy of Kinesiology and will greatly contribute to my success in the field of kinesiology and ultimately, as a physical therapist. Some of my most prominent characteristics include my compassion, empathy, and caring nature. My desire to relate and build relationships will aid me when interacting with patients and provide a comfortable environment to perform my duties in the field of Kinesiology. Many of these traits originate from my personal experience as a patient. After a serious injury I was advised to cease all physical activity, and I was desperate to find anything with the possibility of getting me back to doing what I loved again.

I believe childhood is the building block of life. The sooner we can provide the proper support and resources to children in need, the sooner we can change the trajectory of a child’s life consequently producing healthier happier adults. Presently I volunteer at my church as a Sunday school teacher, working to make a positive impact on the lives of the children and the adolescent member of my congregation. I’m one of the seven teachers who rotate each Sunday. Our mission is to help them understand our faith while also providing them a sense of community and fellowship with their peers.
She explained to me that occupational therapy was concerned with helping the patient in their daily activities and that the OT field was a very interpersonal job, which I loved to hear. Also, as my sister had alluded to before, the therapist told me in great detail how creativity plays a central role in the profession. I couldn’t help but become overjoyed to hear all of these details of an occupational therapist. I’ve always loved creativity and interacting with people even more. The biggest aspect I was elated over the most was the opportunity to not only help a patient physically but also mentally cheer them on and encourage them.
A few months ago, as my mother picked me up from school, she broke the news to me that my grandfather developed stage 4 lung cancer. Since my grandfather is one of the most important people in my life, hearing the news that he was soon passing away made me, and the people around me feel completely helpless. As my mom broke this horrible news to me, I shut myself from believing it. I find it quaint that my grandfather impacted my life in such a tremendous way. Although my grandfather was not biologically related to me, he taught me how giving up is never the solution to a problem.
I discovered that they are in the healthcare field because they truly have a passion for helping others and that is when I realized I too want to spend my life helping people. I have respected healthcare professionals since I was young and through this experience I have an even greater respect for them. I am drawn to nurses especially for they left a warm impact on me when I visited the hospital often during my childhood. I greatly admire nurses for their dedication, patience, and care, and I believe they make a big impact in a healthcare environment. Every patient before they leave the clinic always thank the volunteers who are not healthcare professionals with a big smile, the
Cathy was a man in touch with his spirituality, and so was his wife, Jeanette. He was always giving money to good organizations, usually created by Christians with a good heart. He’s known for having over 150 foster children and taking kids home to his house for dinner. He led a youth ministry at his church, helping young men to go on the right path in life. He established almost 20 foster homes within his lifetime (homes that house a group of foster kids), and made it his goal to guide the youth in the path of God and the church.
