My name is Megan Subr, and I am going into my first year at The Ohio State University. I am a neuroscience, pre-physical therapy major. Being a competitive gymnast from a young age, I experienced numerous injuries that required me to attend physical therapy. My physical therapists helped me not only recover, but also, helped me grow out of my introvert shell by maintaining a friendly environment and talking with me casually. I am so grateful for my experiences in physical therapy, and I hope to one day make the same impact that they all had on me.
Being a gymnast for over 10 years, I have always valued and loved fitness. With my passion for fitness, I joined the Dunn Sport and Wellness Scholars program. I am so excited to be with a group of people that share the same interests as me. With the numerous intramurals and sports clubs, I am positive that I will find my niche to use all of the skills competitive gymnastics taught me and make great friends along the way. I am also looking forward to cheering on our football team at games.
Outside of school and gymnastics, I love crafting. Sewing and crocheting are two of my favorites. Recently, I crocheted a bunch of baby blankets to donate to Elizabeth’s New Life Center in Dayton, Ohio. It was so much fun to use a talent to help others. Another way I have volunteered my time is by helping at the House of Bread, a soup kitchen that is also in Dayton, Ohio. A group of friends and I spend five hours at a time during holidays preparing and serving meals to the homeless. I value my time with friends and family, and I am so grateful that it can have meaning to others too.
I am excited for all of the adventures that wait for me and the path I will create at The Ohio State!
