What I do: Aside from being a student, I am involved in the Sidney Lanier Fitness/Sports Research Program, a program that specializes in the physical education of students with intellectual disabilities, a member of Undergraduate Physical Therapy Association (UPTA), a volunteer at the Rehabilitation Center at Shands Medical Plaza, and a Student Assistant in the Department of HSRMP at the University of Florida College of Public Health and Health Professions.
Why I joined aKDPhi: I joined aKDPhi because I wanted a family away from home and it turned out that joining a sisterhood would be exactly what I needed. I also admired how accomplished and talented all the sisters were; I still look up to my sisters and they continually motivate and challenge me to do better and be the best person I can be, personally and professionally.
