Why are you participating in the "Augustana in Australia" program?

I'm participating because I think it is a great way to experience another country while gaining experience for a future career.

What value do you hope to add back to the internship site?

I hope that I can become an asset to the facility I work in and that they will recognize my hard work and eagerness to learn about the profession.

What do you hope to learn on your internship?

I hope that I can learn a lot about physical therapy with an athletic focus so I can decide if this is definitely where I am headed in life.

Where do you plan to travel during your term "down under?"

I hope that I can make it to New Zealand!

What do you anticipate to be the highlight of your experience "down under?"

I think the highlight will be being able to travel the city and experience the Ocean and hopefully the Great Barrier Reef.
