Rima Lintakas, SPT

Posted By Matthew Nicholas, Chapter Relations & Marketing Coordinator, Wednesday, November 8, 2017

My Lyft driver Saturday night asked me, "What’s one thing you learned at your conference this weekend?" I thought about that question for a bit. At the time, I was stumped. Later that night, I realized what I had learned wasn't a tangible piece of information, but a realization of a feeling. The feeling, that I was accepted in the #PTFam community. The outpouring of love when other students found out I was the only person from my program at this and previous conferences. The mutual respect, that we're all in this together (cue High School Musical soundtrack in my head).

It's crazy to think, that within the past year, so many opportunities have opened because I attended NSC in Miami. I was a part of the 2017 NSC Project Committee to help plan this conference. I became the 2017-2018 IPTA Student SIG Vice President. I worked with the APTA to present 3 member value talks to the PT classes within my program. I am a presence on Twitter - so much so, that when I re-introduced myself to Dr. Dunn, she said "Oh, yes, from Twitter!". Because of NSC, I have been thriving in PT school, not merely surviving.
