Preparing for a lifetime of impact
After volunteering at a rehabilitation facility in her native Zimbabwe, she was inspired to become a physical therapist.
“I knew right from the beginning that I wanted to go into physical therapy,” says Mutsa, who moved to the U.S. in 2011.
When it came time to pick a college, Mutsa was drawn to IUPUI because of the plentiful opportunities to enhance her education outside of the classroom—things like joining student organizations, conducting research with faculty, and studying abroad. But it was IUPUI’s emphasis on community engagement that really resonated with her.
“What really sold me was making an impact,” she says. “I didn’t want to be that student who went to school, came home, and did nothing.”
