Dream Job: Physical Therapist for a professional sports team
College & Major: University of Kansas, Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science
Future Plans: After high school, I will be attending the University of Kansas to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science. While at KU, I will be a part of the Honors program. This means I will take many honors level courses, conduct undergraduate research, and study abroad. I plan to stay on track and graduate from KU in four years, with honors. After completing undergraduate school, I plan to attend graduate school and obtain my Doctorate in Physical Therapy. It is my dream to travel with a professional sports team, working as their physical therapist. I would also love to own a PT clinic in the future.
