Alumna update: Juhi Daryanani, ’12


Reshma R (12), Editor

What are you doing now?

I will return to study physiotherapy at the Northeastern graduate program.

There are so many subfields in medicine. How did you end up choosing physiotherapy?

I was initially unaware of what I wanted to do because I wasn’t exposed to the various sides of medicine. Then, I was introduced to the doctorate program which provided an internship opportunity at a hospital. My job was specifically related to neurological rehabilitation–and I loved doing it, which is how I came to do physiotherapy.

How long will you study physiotherapy?

It’s a six-year program, and I am in my third year.

How do you think Sacred Heart influenced you in what you do?

I think Sacred Heart prepared me well for the obstacles that I had to overcome.

How big is the transition from Sacred Heart to university?

It’s definitely a step up the ladder. For example, in Northeastern, to pass my specific courses, I need to get above 73%–otherwise, I have to wait a whole year to take the course again. But, I also have many more opportunities to blend fun and work.

Any tips for the Seniors?

Everything will work out fine in the end, so try not to stress too much.
