What clubs/organizations are you involved in?

Where have you studied abroad?

University of Cape Town, South Africa

Have you been engaged in research, internship opportunities, student teaching, or conferences?

I am currently working on a graduate thesis in the occupational therapy (OT) program, exploring the practice of cultural humility in the delivery of OT services. In 2018, I attended the World Federation of Occupational Therapists conference and was selected as Ithaca College’s student delegate to the American Occupational Therapy Association conference for 2020.

Why did you choose Ithaca College?

I chose Ithaca College because I felt that I belonged. That stands true to this day. It is an extremely welcoming and inclusive community. I have never made a better choice than to come to IC.

Is there anything else you would want to share with a prospective student?

Do your work sooner rather than later! And trust that you will end up where you need to be eventually.
