Hello CSS Community: My name is Jovany Joya and I am a senior pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. My career goal is to become a physical therapist. During the Spring of 2017, I began shadowing my supervisor at ATI Physical Therapy in College Park, MD. In May, I was offered a position to become a rehab technician. After working for ATI during the summer, I was offered the opportunity retain my position and continue working at ATI. As a rehab technician, I am responsible for getting every patient through numerous workouts which focus on mobility, strengthening, or stretching. I am also responsible for answering phone calls and filling out any paperwork for any new or existing patients. I have learned a tremendous amount from working at ATI and plan to continue working for ATI once I am a certified therapist.

The College Success Scholars program has played a key role in shaping my personal, academic, and professional experiences at the University of Maryland, College Park. My first year in the program, I was well resourced with tutoring services, free printing, and a satellite office where I spent many hours studying and getting to know other scholars. The following year I had the opportunity to be a team leader. In that role, I was able to understand the behind-the-scenes work that drove the program forward and develop my communication and leadership skills. Continuing in that role this year, I have further developed those skills and cultivated a professional relationship with others in the program and in the OMSE office. Through the CSS program, I have truly grown and matured as a young male of color.
