24-year-old Anaseini Kauvaka is originally from Hilo, Hawai’i. She received her associate’s degree as an Occupational Therapy Assistant last summer, but still comes over to campus to study for her license exam, which is coming up next month. She says that, although some parts of the test are hard, “as long as you know the rationales of the test, you are good.”
She is focused on getting lots of test practice at the moment, and hopes to pass the 200-question exam so she can do fieldwork as an Occupational Therapist. Her aim is to work with rehab within the elderly population.
