ONE OF THE great happenings this past November was that we have officially graduated from university in a ceremony held locally.

And the class of 32 occupational therapy graduates were the pioneer batch of the TCD-SIT degree conversion programme. None of us flew back to Ireland, we had to graduate in absentia for this SIT ceremony. But hey, I finally got to wear a mortar board! After 19 years of formal education.Β

Though we were all already working prior to the graduation ceremony, I think it’s a breather to be part of the celebrations and knowing we have come this far in our occupational therapy milestone. It does not end here of course, it never does. Learning should continue lifelong Β – we should always aspire to expand our thinking and practice, to further develop ourselves as professionals.

In other news, I was interviewed by Ministry of Education (MOE) after the ceremony. It’s always nerve-wrecking to be quoted in a publications! Here’s the link:

Looking forward to growing even more wholesome as an occupational therapist. Till next time!
