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.

A student perspective: The importance of internationalisation

Hello fellow OT students!
I am excited to present a new idea we tried out for the blog section: A certain topic is presented by any member of SPOT, to which the whole community can share their views.
Ulrik, our general board member, wrote down some thoughts he had on the topic of internationalisation and why it is so important. On our instagram feed we shared a poll, asking for your opinion on internationalisation. I quoted some of your answers further down in the blog post.
We hope this may inspire you to get active and exchange your thoughts with OT students worldwide, keep your minds open and embrace new possibilites through international exchange! 🙂
