Why York College?

York College is one of the most diverse CUNY colleges and it is very easy to commute to. The main reason why I chose York College is that this is the only CUNY college that offers the Occupational Therapy BS/MS program.

Where do you hope to be in 5 years?

In 5 years I hope to be pursuing my dream career and travel the world!

What high school did you go to and why?

I went to Thomas A. Edison CTE High School because it has shop classes which are programs such as graphic design, medical technology, architecture, and computer science. It prepares you for your future career of interest.

Favorite class and why?

I love anatomy and physiology because it is challenging and it teaches you a lot about health and wellness. It is always interesting to know how your body functions. I also love one of my current classes called Stress and Health. It teaches you how to manage your daily stressors and take care of your overall wellbeing.
