I worked with young children in the resource room with the staff that included teachers, special needs assistants and an occupational therapist, who routinely visits the school. I found the experience immensely rewarding to see the progress the children made in such a short space of time. I was able to see and discuss the different exercises that the occupational therapist used with the children in order for them to make progress. This gave me a great insight into the work environment and daily tasks of an occupational therapist and it made me realise that I had the personality traits and abilities that suited this career
1. My life experiences just happened to lead me to social work by chance; I believe it was meant to happen, however. After I got my GED when I was 18, I was left with the question: what now? Do I decide to try college, or go to work? My mother tried to go to college at Ball State, but she barely finished a year before she decided it wasn’t for her.

I have always been interested in a career in the care industry, and after meeting with an experienced occupational therapist, I was sure that occupational therapy is a career suited to my personality and abilities. I am excited by the diverse nature of the work and the effect that meaningful activity can have in helping individuals improve their quality of life and achieve personal goals. I am a sympathetic listener, open-minded and tolerant of others lifestyles and I think that along with my problem-solving skills, and desire to help people, the range of activities which I am skilled at and enjoy would greatly aid me in helping people to rehabilitate themselves. I look forward to attending ________ where I will learn the skills necessary to make a difference by helping people gain independence and increase confidence.

With all the pressure and exhaustion they experience, knowing that they have given their best in rendering quality nursing care towards patient wellness was enough. I would be glad to experience it as well and be able to touch people’s lives and provide the care they need.

Reassuring anxious patients, to me, mirrored the way radiographers must be able to be empathetic and reassure nervous patients.

I loved building up trusting relationships with the people and felt rewarded after every day as I knew I had helped people with their day to day lives and their happiness was my
With all of my reasons why I want to further my education the most important reason is so I can give back to my family and community one day. Upward Bound has taught me so many valuable lessons and how to manage my time wisely. The people that helped me at school and club have made me want to further my education and come back with a college degree. Mr.Hardeman showing me what hard work can do for you and pursue your goals. This is why I want to further my schooling and make all of these people proud and show them that accomplish everything they believe I can
This was an experience that few teenagers are accustomed too. However, I found that I loved the job for a very simple reason, the connections I made with other people. I felt that I was performing God’s work and that this was a new chapter in God’s plan for me. The nurses that I worked under were fantastic role-models. They encouraged me to continue my education in healthcare.
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
College is often regarded as a time of exploration, a time to discover interests and passions that ignite a desire to seek sagacity in a field that will alleviate the burdens of others and fulfill one’s self wholeheartedly. It is essential to me that my college career allows me to strive for educational excellence and moral enrichment simultaneously. Through the Pre-Physical Therapy track it will be my focus to obtain an education to help others as I have been helped in the past. Restoring movement and functionality to someone’s life is deeply connected to SPU’s vision, for the work that physical therapists do is equally as transformative for the therapist as it is to the patient. To ensure someone receives the treatment they need to carry out the life they want is paramount

I feel you will become a great Medical Assistant with all your traits! I feel as if those with empathetic traits were meant to be in the medical field. Empathy makes a medical assistant more compassionate and able to relate well to any patient. Being a developer makes all people feel motivated. Seeing potential in others keeps people away from negativity.
I enjoyed going to the Center for Disabilities because it provided me with greater insight to tone and movement that is atypical looking. Feeling the difference between tone and muscle tightness was a great educational experience and the biggest thing I took away from being at the Center for Disabilities. The therapists I worked with were great in allowing me participate in transfers and treatment sessions. They both pointed out things that I would have not noticed on my own and allowed me handle the children in different positions on wedges, mats and therapy balls. Handling the children was what I was most hesitant on.
First of all, since I am very passionate about becoming an Occupational Therapist, I believe I have most of the qualities that an OT needs. Occupational Therapists work with people struggling with disabling emotional, mental, physical, or developmental issues and work to enhance the daily living skills of a patient’s life. Occupational Therapists must also be patient, compassionate, and people-oriented (BLS, 2015). As mentioned above, my workplace has drastically enhanced my communication skills, that will certainly help me be a better OT. While I shadowed an OT about a week ago, she was
