Year in Review

I learned a lot this past year, not only about Ohio State, but about myself.  I was quick to join the Pre-PT/OT Club to learn more about the career I would like to have in the future. Through this club, I was given the opportunity to become a research volunteer at the James Crane Institute of Sports Medicine. Working alongside the PhD students has been an eye-opening experience, and has taught me a lot in a short period of time. I plan to continue working with them and will hopefully compose my own research project in their lab in the future.

Aside from academics, I also joined the Club Swim Team in hopes to continue my swimming career from high school. I also became closer to my roots by participating in the Jewish Learning Fellowship through OSU Hillel. This was a very special experience in which I was able to talk to other Jewish college students about Judaism and what it means to us here and now in our society. I also plan to be the HSS Team Captain for Buckeyethon next year and increase involvement in the dance marathon so we can reach our goal of $2 million FTK!

Overall, I learned a lot about myself this year, and hope to continue my growth next semester by becoming a Peer Mentor for HSS and an Ohio State Welcome Leader (OWL) Coordinator.




A: Recently I acquired a position as a research volunteer for the James Crane Institute of Sports Medicine. I hope to use this along with my coursework and shadowing/observation experience to prepare me for a successful career as a physical therapist. I also have a passion for sign language, and am taking classes here at OSU and hope to become an ASL interpreter.


S: At home in Cincinnati, I volunteer at the Over-the-Rhine Soup Kitchen and the Ronald McDonald House at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. This year at Ohio State, I participated in Buckeyethon, and became a Miracle Maker FTK, which means I raised over $1000 for children in the hematology/oncology unit at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. I hope to continue serving my community by becoming more involved in HSS service events, Buckeyethon, and service through the Pre-PT/OT Club!
