In the United States, everyone should have the chance to pursue their dreams. When someone has their mobility taken from them it can be devastating because they’ve also lost some of their freedom with it. I want to do everything thing I can to allow others to regain their freedom and live happy lives. My personal dream would be to one day practice physical therapy and give others the mobility to live happy fulfilling lives. The idea of watching someone succeed in taking their first steps after their treatment is something I often think about. Especially knowing that from that point on they can put their past behind them and look towards their future. The coursework and financial obligations for me to become a physical therapist will be substantial but its moments like that which will make it worth. Someday I will help people walk again and with it find the freedom for them to live better lives.
