Favorite thing to do in Pittsburgh
When the weather is nice, I love walking down to Point State Park and grabbing some ice cream from Millie's on the way! I love the views from there, and it's a great, relaxing distraction from schoolwork!
Favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh
Turkish Kebab House in Squirrel Hill is amazing. They have the best falafels, pita, and chicken and lamb kebab!
Why I chose my major
I chose to major in occupational therapy because I am passionate about helping others who may not be able to live their lives to their fullest abilities. I have always wanted to work with kids, and this field allows me to do that in a perspective that is medical, psychosocial, and holistic!
