OT, Therapy Dogs, and a Letter of Recommendation

Volunteering in an outpatient therapy facility in Ecuador solidified my future career choice. I had the chance to work with kids, adults, and even therapy dogs in my 7 weeks in Ecuador. I got to know the therapists so well that one wrote me a letter of recommendation for graduate school. The hours I spent in this clinic also were verified so I could use them on my application too. The weekends I spent traveling to different parts of the country, soaking in the culture. What I didn't learn from travel, I learned from living with the best host family I've ever had. In the midst of all that, my language skills flourished. I even spent a week translating for a group of OT students from the U.S. I couldn't have asked for a better experience than what La Academia Latino Americana helped provide for me.
