My Grandmother made sure to wake me up every morning to haul me of to school where I would meet my loving, devoted teachers and coaches. With their help I left John Edgar Howard elementary school with a strong head on my shoulders, and the devotion to strive for more. I had to move to a different elementary school because John Edgar Howard Elementary ended up being closed, because of the rough neighborhood. I then, attended Bradbury Heights; a school that I didn’t know existed. I was never exposed to many different neighborhoods, or opportunities.
Conversely, he left behind a lasting legacy and raised millions of dollars towards cancer research; he managed to exceed previous self imposed expectations, thus making him a success transcending time itself. I believe the factors that enabled Fox to accomplish such extraordinary feats can be found in his character traits. I will start with his overdeveloped sense of empathy, which was the catalyst to his quest to raise money and awareness for cancer. Fox endured sixteen months of chemotherapy, and while at the hospital, he was moved by the plight of other cancer afflicted patients in his ward. Fox found it unfair that some of the patients would not be able to walk away, but he would.
They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later
Thankfully, my father recovered well, but he suffered and his hospital stay was prolonged as a result of a preventable error.

One of the courses that I highly enjoyed during my undergraduate
Now most people would be nervous of moving to a new school, but all we had to do was move through new hallways since our middle and high school are connected. Freshman year was probably the hardest year I've had looking back at it now and shaped me to be who I am today. Back in 2013 my grandpa had passed away from a rare form of lung cancer and my Mina (grandma) was suffering on and off from it, having no one to take care of her my mom would stay at her house 5 to 6 days out of the week and she would go there right after work. I would hardly see my mom except in the mornings before school and by than she would be sleeping after driving home from Danbury at 5am. My dad was hardly around from work and just not wanting to be home.

One of his main patients is a man named Leonard Lowe, played by Robert Deniro. Doctor Sayer begins a diligent study. To the \present day, there are still many questions surrounding this strange disease. During one amazing season in the late 60's, a miracle happened. In my opinion, both Robin Williams and Robert Deniro should have won Oscars for this film.
I was bound to a rigid daily routine of going to school and coming home. I grew worried that my four years of high school would pass by without a chance for me to continue the work that I loved doing with the Durnibar Foundation. But gradually, I realized that the time spent with my aunt was my new outlet to help those in need.
When I was growing up, I always wanted to work in the medical field. Freshman year of high school, I joined Student Athletic Training at my school because it exposed me to medical injuries in high stress situations. Even though I was working with an athletic trainer and loving it, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do; I switched from wanting to be a pediatrician to an oncologist and then an orthopedic surgeon. I settled on becoming an OBGYN because I had just watched my sister give birth to her son. I thought that delivering babies had to be the most important job because I’d be taking care of new life.
Occupational therapy saved my family. Growing up with a sister with severe spastic cerebral palsy to include both cognitive and functional deficits, life existed on a day to day, hour by hour basis, as we were unsure of challenges each moment would bring. This all changed the moment occupational therapy brought quality of life back to me and my family. My very personal experience defined my purpose to become an occupational therapist, to pay the gift given my family forward. As an occupational therapist I would like to help individuals who are differently abled gain quality of life and independence by improving upon both mental and physical challenges to function as a whole person, as this is what I understand the role of the occupational therapist from both personal and observational experience to be.
