“What do you want to be when you get older?” I think everyone remembers how many times he or she has heard this question growing up. I just now made a final decision on what I wanted to do when I grow up. I’m 21 years old and I’m in my third semester in college. I’ve always been brutally scared by this question because I never know what I wanted to do with my life, the only thing I knew for the longest time was that I wanted to help people. This year I finally decided I wanted to become a physical therapist because I hurt my ankle a while back when I was running and it stopped me from doing a plethora of things I love. I then decided I wanted to help people feel better physically to the best of my ability by becoming a physical therapist. I’ve always believed that whatever career path I chose to go down I was going to be the best at, not in a cocky way, but confidence. Physical therapy has some of the most competitive programs to get in to, and I want to be the best at what I do, not for me, but for my clients. I want the utmost education and social skills you can find. I believe physical therapy changes the world for people and their families in time that seems impossible because physical therapists make miracles happen by making the impossible possible. I love helping people and that’s what I love doing most. Physical therapy changes the world every day and I want to be that change.
