"I want to be a physiotherapist because I have a great passion in health particularly in paediatrics.  I grew up seeing children with cerebral palsy and other conditions in which physiotherapy can help people.  You also see people with stroke in our communities and I have a passion to reach out to these people and help them.  I have really seen that physiotherapy is crucial.  Everyone needs a physiotherapist.  When I graduate I want to work  in Malawi.  I can’t learn here and then go outside Malawi.  This would not be good for my country.  I have a dream to have my own physiotherapy clinic.  I want it to be in the district where I grew up in Phalombe district.”
