I actually transferred in, and when I came to Daemen, I just met all these amazing people. They got me involved. They made me want to be at school and spend time on campus.

When I was a kid, and like when I wanna grow up.

I changed like what I wanna do so many times.

I don’t think I even knew what I wanna do for a while.

So I want to be a teacher and then a pediatrician.

And then I knew I wanna work in the medical field.

Now that I’m an adult, I do want to be a physical therapist when I grow up.

I got a couple more years ahead of me to do that growing (laughs).

When I came to Daemen, I think that it shaped me by like, just the professors that are here.

They’re very involved and really are able to support you and push you towards a career that you want to go for.

So I think that when I came here, I didn’t know what I wanna do 100%.

But once I got into the program, I knew that that’s what I want to do because I consistently had that support and encouragement and the opportunities to explore the career.

I think that Daemen has allowed me to embrace who I am as an individual by allowing me so many opportunities just throughout campus.

I think the biggest thing for campus involvement is just you can step into whatever you might be interested in, even if it’s not your major.

So I think being able to explore other things, whether it’s classes, clubs, organizations.

They allow a lot of different opportunities for different events, to just get to try new things and experiencing things.

When I came to Daemen, that feeling of just knowing that I wanted to be here was there.

I didn’t find it the first time because I did transfer.

But I knew that the school I was at was not for me.

So as soon as I came to Daemen, I found that all those opportunities that, is where I wanted to be.

Hi, I’m Amanda Klubek, and I’m a Physical Therapy Major at Daemen College.

And I think that you should experience Daemen for yourself.
