My name is Faith Whitt, I am 18 years old and I am currently a freshman at Oakland University. I am deciding between a pediatric occupational therapy, and elementary education as my future career field.
One of my favorite things to do outside of school is volunteer with a group called OU Cares, they work with kids with autism and in doing so, I can create relationships with others. I have a passion for playing soccer, and I currently am a member of the OU club soccer team. I work two jobs during the school year. Which include coaching elementary aged students in
sports such as basketball, soccer, and baseball, and working with the company Rata2ee, where we create young chefs by promoting healthy baking and cooking techniques to our students of all ages.
