Hello! Welcome to my digital portfolio! My name is Emma Klopatek, I'm a junior at Frisco High School, and I've chosen to study physical therapy this year for my independent study. Some of my other interests include biology and psychology. I decided to study physical therapy because of my passion for people and working with them to see results. I chose to be in ISM to interact with business professionals and to immerse myself into the professional world. My goals this year are to gain knowledge and skills in the aspect of physical therapy and the professionals in order to learn for the future in anything I go into. Outside of school, I'm a dancer at Sheena's Dance Academy and have always had a passion for dance.
Through the Independent Study and Mentorship program I aim to improve my skills in speaking, gain valuable experiences in the professional world, and develop a better understanding in physical therapy. Through my mentor I will learn how physical therapists conduct themselves and work with so many different people with a variety of injuries, thus choosing a course of study in college and better preparing myself for a physical therapy career in the future. By working under the guidance of my mentor and conducting my own research, I hope to create a final project showing my passion and drive for the future. Demonstrating integrity, determination, and discipline I hope to challenge my abilities and inspire many people as I aspire to attain the skills needed to become a physical therapist.
