Why I Chose to do Odyssey
When I first heard about the opportunity to apply for the Odyssey Scholar Program, I was very hesitant about applying and I didn’t end up deciding that I was going to do it until the week before the application was due. I was really interested in the program itself because of all the opportunities and doors it could open for me, and devoting three periods of the day to something that I am passionate about sounded amazing. Part of me was scared to apply, but now looking back, it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Odyssey has given me the opportunity to talk to people who specialize in ortho therapy, interview them, and intern under them which has been one of the coolest experiences of my life.
As I mentioned in my very first blog, I was a competitive cheerleader for pretty much my whole life, but I was always breaking bones, and it always took me longer to heal from broken bones. Ortho Therapy helped decrease my recovery time and also helped me prevent from getting hurt. It has made a huge impact on my life and I want to do the same for others.
Odyssey has helped me get a headstart to my career because I have already learned so much about Ortho Therapy in just one quarter. I am beyond excited to keep going with my project and learning more about Ortho Therapy in depth.
