Tell Us Your Good Deed:
I volunteered at Rocking Horse Rehab, a pediatric rehabilitation and family wellness center focused on equine assisted therapies known as Hippotherapy. There, I assisted with various approaches to rehabilitation, celebrated progress and reevaluated relapses, treating children with a wide range of medical conditions. One of the greatest joys in working with these children with special needs was observing the progress the horses could engender. Each relationship between child and horse is unique and acts as an impetus for success, motivating the child to work hard to achieve his goals. My time spent in this therapeutic environment was integral in further identifying my passion to help others.
