Acorn Math Activity

Haven’t updated in a while! But I have been busy since I’ve started working with another family. I still haven’t heard back from schools.. I am hoping that no news is good news for now. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I just wanted to post the acorn math activity I made for one of the kids I work with. I hope this works. We’ll see about that tomorrow!

Finally done with OT Applications!

Standard

I finally finished completing the entire OTCAS application for 5 schools a few days ago. What a relief! I just have a few more supplemental applications to submit, but now it’s just the waiting game (again!), haha.

I know so much more now than when I had applied two years ago. Since the most overwhelming part is over, I can focus on work and things I really want to do!

I’m so excited for this year. Hopefully I get interviews by September. Fingers crossed, my friends!

The Beginning of Another Journey

Standard

This blog is going to be about my learning process: my current journey of trying to get into occupational therapy (OT) graduate school as a second time applicant, life, and everything in between.

The views expressed in this blog are mine and are no way endorsed by my employers, dog, or university I attended. I hope to use this as a space for my own self reflection to keep inspiring myself and other future OT students like me, everywhere!

I graduated in May 2011 with a BS in Community Health; concentrations in Rehabilitation/Disability Studies and Health Education and  Promotion. I first discovered OT in high school when my grandmother had a stroke. Through getting to know her OT and seeing the power of therapy, I knew that this was the path for me. Since then, I have immersed myself into the field. My path to becoming an OT continually shapes me into the person I am today.

In college, I became more involved in volunteering and working with people with disabilities. I have also observed OT in the school, clinic, and hospital settings. I currently work as a rehab aide, play group instructor, and special needs babysitter. The people I work with inspire and teach me every day. Everything I have experienced so far will help me become the best therapist I can be.

I want to assure people that they are not alone in this. If I have been able to share my story with just one person, I have truly succeeded. I hope to continually update the aspiring OT student community out there with my own experiences as well as my reapplication process of getting into graduate school and ultimately becoming a licensed OT.
