I am in my final year of studies in occupational therapy (OT). In South Africa it is a 4 year degree that covers the foundational theory and philosophies of OT, psychology, human anatomy and physiology, psychiatry and African languages (isiXhosa and Afrikaans) to be able to communicate with patients and the communities we work in. We do clinical/practical service learning where we work on sites and receive input from supervisors while also continuing in theory and lectures. OT’s can work in physical and mental health, child learning development and play, work practice and community development. Our learning is structured in clusters. I will be registered with the Health Professiona Council of South Africa upon graduation and complete a year of community service. I have returned to study in following my dream career. I worked with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder on an individual basis when I discovered OT. I am eager to continue this work, on a community level when I am qualified. I am aware of the privilege that accompanies education and I am determined to give back in my future as an OT. It is an incredible profession that has the capacity to do so much for South Africa. Please help me with my final tertiary fee due at the end of June 2018.
