My name is Sarahi Lerma. I am an occupational therapy student from Northern Arizona University with a bachelor's degree in life sciences and a minor in sociology.
My family comes from several small towns in Mexico with limited resources for appropriate healthcare services, such as therapies, and I have personally experienced how this has a great impact on quality of life. Through these experiences I have found my love for occupational therapy and I am very passionate about giving back to communities with limited resources in sustainable ways.
In the past I have volunteered and worked in programs for children with special needs such as summer camps, special events, foster care, respite care and habilitation services. For the past 2 years I have been gymnastics instructor helping kiddos from the ages of 4 months to 12 years grow physical, social and cognitive skills in a positive and non-competitive environment. I am very excited to work with GOT Ministries to learn new skills that will help me become a better servant leader and for the opportunity to work with amazing kiddos.
