NEW BOARD MEMBER

Hello everyone!

My name is Gaëlle. I am a 22-year-old student from Belgium, currently in my first year of the European Master of Science in Occupational Therapy. I’m also working in the rehabilitation department where I help rehabilitate patients in the polytrauma and amputation ward. This hands-on experience is invaluable and allows me to apply what I have learned and make a tangible difference in patients’ lives.  

Furthermore, I can also enthusiastically announce that I am the new blogger at SPOT. I’m looking forward to starting this new adventure. However, I would like to thank Aleyna, who has done a great job as a Blogger. She has covered many topics on occupational therapy in her blogs. Each time, she brought this with great enthusiasm. Aleyna is now taking up the role of event Coordinator.

Hi everyone, my name is Victoria Amoako. I am 22yrs and I currently attend the University of Southampton in England studying Occupational Therapy. 

I heard about SPOT Europe through my lecture, and I was immediately drawn to the mission and vision of SPOT Europe. As a general board member, I am super excited to embark on this journey with my amazing colleagues to ensure the collaboration of OT students to create and manage impactful projects worldwide. I love to swim, and play basketball, football and volleyball when I am less busy :). 

With my creative and empathetic nature, I look forward to advocating and promoting OT internationally.

SPOT’s new blogger and the somewhat ancient history of OT in Greece.

Greetings everyone! I am Emmanouela (or Emma for short) and from now on I will be the new SPOT blogger!

A little bit of information for me

I was born and raised in Athens, Greece and I am currently studying Occupational Therapy as a second year student at Metropolitan College in Athens. I hadn’t heard of SPOTeurope before the workshop about internalisation, that took place at the premises of Metropolitan College at Marousi Campus. It was then that, I knew I had to get involved. This experience in combination with my volunteering experience at the annual ENOTHE conference made me realise that I want to communicate more with OT students from all over Europe and expand my view of the “occupational world”!
