Sarah - Physical Therapy Student Ambassador
Hey! My name is Sarah! I am from Lexington, SC. I attended the University of South Carolina, where I was a Biological Sciences major with Chemistry minor. While I was a student at Carolina I had the most wonderful opportunity to be a cheerleader for my beloved Gamecocks. That experience will always be one of my fondest memories!
Since I have moved to Charleston, I have fallen in love with this city! There is so much to do here; everyone can find an activity that suits him or her. Personally, I love the history of downtown and all of the old buildings of the “Holy City.” I also love the fact that the beach is only twenty minutes away.
Since I was young, I always knew MUSC was the school where I wanted to end up. Having relatives attend school here and talk about how awesome it was left me with high expectations. As I have spent more time here, I have realized that MUSC truly lives up to these expectations and even surpasses them. The best thing about the university is the emphasis put on interprofessionalism. It is a great opportunity to build relationships with students and professionals in programs other than your own.
Being a physical therapy student is wonderful. I have known for a long that I wanted to work in the health field. I chose PT because it is a great profession for building connections with your patients while helping gain a better life. As of now, I do not know in what area of physical therapy I want to practice, but I am excited to get some experience through the four clinical rotations the PT program offers.
