Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my mission trip page!
Last semester, the faculty and the older students talked to my class about a trip to Jamaica to interact with children and adults with disabilities. Jamaica does not provide the wide amount and variety of services for people with disabilities that we are so accustomed to here in the United States. After learning more about the trip, I realized this was something I really wanted to be able to do.
In March, I will be traveling to Kingston, Jamaica with other Occupational Therapy classsmates, where we will get to assist with proper wheelchair fitting, feeding and communication and go on outings to explore the world! I am excited to be able to apply the skills that I have learned from my first few semesters in OT school in a real world setting as well as learn from the children, adults, and nurses that we will be with during the week! I am humbled with the opportunity to provide these services to those who often do not receive them, and to be able to take some of the load off of the wonderful nurses who serve this community tirelessly every day.
Please feel free to message me if you have any questions about my trip! These donations are tax-deductible. I would also like to mention that we can fundraise through a Yankee Candle sale as well as raffle, if you are interested in helping me fundraise through these methods.
