Physical therapy was not always my first choice in a career I knew I wanted to be involved in health care but I did not know what my calling was until after I applied to Drexel for my undergraduate studies At first I decided I wanted to be a biomedical engineer I wanted to design prosthetics and other supplies that would benefit many who were in need This was my dream in high school and it was my declared major when I first applied to colleges It was not until my pre-calculus teacher made me take AP Calculus that I wanted to switch my major I will just say that calculus was not my favorite subject and I knew that it came up a lot in most types of engineering Through volunteer work and exposure to physical therapy I felt increasingly driven to follow a career path that would lead me to earning a DPT degree In Drexels DPT program I would be able to truly apply myself and learn as much as I can about many aspects of physical therapy After deciding not to follow my dream to be a biomedical engineer I wanted to look into other careers in health care In 2009 my cousin was in a car accident that almost cost him use of his legs The doctors said the bones were broken in so many places that they were not sure he would have full use of his legs again His legs were then reconstructed and he started going to physical therapy three times per week I could not make it to every session but when I did I fell in love with it Because of his determination and hard work the physical therapists were able to strengthen his legs back to his original condition before the accident Thanks to the physical therapists my cousin was able to gladly prove the doctors wrong It has been four years since
