Furaha Meki Mwadime

Occupational Therapy BSc

'York St John gave me a platform to explore Occupational Therapy on such a wide scale. I had the opportunity to interact with our brilliant lecturers who had so much experience. I currently work for Tunaweza Children’s Centre as an Outreach Occupational Therapist in Uganda dealing with children with autism. My greatest ambition is to open my own rehabilitation centre in Uganda and Kenya that aspires to not only provide therapies to children, but to to raise awareness on the different learning disabilities that can affect people, as that is currently a wide gap in our countries.'
