about to graduate. At the time, I was also working full time in Physical therapy clinic. I have
now graduated from the school. The graduation was held in June this year.
The motivation to apply for Physical therapy is my desire to acquire advanced skills and
knowledge to impact positively to the society. I also noticed that, the medical course I studied in
Acupuncture school was not enough to enable me render quality services to patients. The
opportunity therefore, will help me have confidence in myself as I provide care to different
patients. Furthermore, my own experience at a health facility has motivated me to seek for more
skills and knowledge in this field. When I was admitted in a heath care after experiencing
shoulder and neck pain, the services I received satisfactory service. The care was awesome and I
feel motivated and encouraged to pursue my studies and help many other people. These are some
of the reasons and motivation for my quest to be part of Loma Linda University.
Currently, I am working under physical therapist who graduated from Loma Linda. This
working relationship has enabled me to learn many aspects concerning Loma Linda University. I
am a believer, worshiping at an Adventist church and I take issues of faith seriously. The
university as well is built on strong religious faith that matches well with my spiritual belief.
Therefore, I am eager to pursue my studies in an institution that respects people religious beliefs
hence , will continue to strengthen my religion beliefs.
I am also taking 18 units in California State University, Domingoez Hill and 5 units in
Los Angeles Community College which are one of the prerequisites for Loma Linda University.
I work 20 hours a week in Physical Therapy clinic. In addition, every Saturday, I attend worship
in Olympic Seventh-day Adventist Church and do 2 hours volunteer work for serving a food and
cleaning the church. I am doing my best to get good results that will get me an admission to
Loma Linda University.

gratitude. I believe that I have an obligation to help the society to achieve quality health. The
