When I completed High School, I spent a year Au Pairin in the UK and decided one day to go off to a career counsellor to gain some insight as to what I might study for a career upon completion of my year. The careers specialist suggested Occupational Therapy due to my interests in Art, Science and helping people. The idea made total sense and I have loved all the learning, training and work experience. What the career specialist did not mention is that most people do not know what Occupational Therapy or OT is.
Below is a video of an award winning journalist, Melanie Reid who also did not know what OT is, until she needed it herself.
