How To Be Sound

What one does is what counts. Not what one has the intention to do. -Pablo Picasso 

Career Options:


I spent my first 3 years in England between 2008 and 2011 studying physiotherapy.


This was after 2 years of study in Ireland as an access course to get into England.


My plan on qualifying was to move back home, find a job and enjoy what I missed most; family, friends and football.


In terms of work I decided either sport or private clinics were for me.


All my initial efforts were placed in trying to get a foot in the door through unpaid work in Ireland.


I had always imagined after studying in college for 5 years that I would be able to find something in Ireland, an unpaid internship was hardly asking a lot.


A driven and determined 22 year old ready to work hard for free in exchange for a bit of an education.


Any takers….nope.


Little did I know my real education was just starting, nothing college could teach you.


The big bad real world so they say.


When all the options seemed exhausted, I was given an opportunity but back in the place I had just returned from, England.


Back To England:


An offer of an unpaid internship with a professional rugby league team with a couple of days part time work in a clinic to get by financially.
