What brought you to occupational therapy?
I was lured to pursue Occupational Therapy as I wanted to pursue a healthcare profession where I could help others and specifically work with children. I have seen family members go through Occupational Therapy and after my internship at an outpatient clinic I knew this would be the perfect job for me to incorporate my love for helping others and working with children in a leadership role.
What area of practice are you interested in?
I am interested in working in Pediatrics in a clinical setting.
What are some of the occupations you engage in?
Some occupations that I engage in include travelling, cooking, speaking different languages, and organizing.
If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?
If I could travel anywhere I would want to visit the Caribbean Islands.
If you were famous, what would you be famous for?
If I was famous, I would be a famous YouTuber because I love to talk a lot, especially in front of a camera, and I think I could vlog and video a lot of interesting times in my life such as the amazing trips I have been on, the meals I have made, the languages I know, and so much more that I find interesting to watch on YouTube myself.
