“I major in Occupational Therapy! I wanted to pursue this because I have a love for helping people. I currently work for a family who has a daughter that is 25 and has cerebral palsy. I feed, dress her, turn her book pages, put her makeup on, and everything in between. OT gives people like her and people without disabilities a chance at having their life back, and I would be honored to do that for someone.”
Alexis English, University of Alabama at Birmingham
“I am proud of the university I attend. UAB has had a rough few years with the elimination of football, bowling and rifling. I have stayed loyal along with the rest of the Birmingham community and this is our year; football is back in 2017! GO BLAZERS!”
Katherine Kamenjarin, Southern Illinois University
“My favorite late night study snack is Taco Bell, because tacos.”
