So for those of you that don't know me my name is Orla Cullen. I am 23 years old and I am a physiotherapy student at Cardiff university. My journey to becoming a physiotherapy student at one of the top schools in the UK for physio, was not an easy one, nor was it a straight forward one. I had to work hard for my place at Cardiff and I am extremely grateful to be here. The skills you learn as a physio are valuable and if I can take these skills and use them to help people well then I will have achieved one of the main goals of why I decided to become a physiotherapist.
While I know I am at the early stage of my education, I think this placement will really give me the opportunity to enhance the skills I have learned and shape me as a physio.
Work the world are a well reknowned organisation who:
- craft healthcare electives around the world tailored to your individual interests. Coming from a decade of experience sending thousands students abroad.
- take their social responsibility very seriously and understand that they've an ethical obligation to maximise the benefits of their placements and to ensure they have no negative impact locally.
- they employ local people to run their programmes instead of expats. They purchase products and food from the communities in which they're based. They rent private accommodation from local landlords. And they use public transport whenever it is safe and convenient to do so.
I am using this page to raise the following money:
£ 700- For my flights
£ 1750- For the elective placement which covers all my costs including accomodation, the placement, food etc.
