Pendah’s Journey Continued (Part 5)

The 2012-13 school year had begun and Pendah was now going to be a team manager for the Indiana University’s women’s basketball team. However, life is not all about basketball. There were other things that Pendah dealt with as she executed her transition from Ohio Northern to Indiana University.

The question of where Pendah would live surfaced. She had been living in another state on her own when she attended Ohio Northern. However, the decision to attend IU was made over the summer and there was not a lot of time to consider living arrangements. Pendah chose to live at home though this was not her first choice. She had been away. She had been in a situation where she had a lot of freedom and independence. It’s always difficult for young adults to return to their parents’ house after having been on their own.

Many conversations have transpired and continue to occur between Pendah and her mother about where she would live in the future while attending IU. Pendah desires to be in a more independent situation; although, she does not care to live in the dorms. Pendah raised the issue that she had been successful academically while away. Therefore, she had learned to be responsible. Pendah desires to have her mother accept that she can take care of herself. Pendah perceived that her mom agreed that next year, she would move into an independent arrangement. Keep in mind that this blog is from Pendah’s perspective only. There may be more going on with these discussions that I am not privy to.

Pendah also wanted to revisit what she was studying. She had done an internship in the summer of 2012 in pharmacy at a local pharmaceutical manufacturer. She did not care for the work and wanted to reconsider what she would study. Pendah remembered that when she was in high school, she wanted to study athletic training prior to her interest in pharmacy. She dropped her interest in athletic training because she discovered that you cannot study athletic training while participating in a sport on the college level. So, thinking about this interest, Pendah researched the area of exercise science. Additionally, Pendah became interested in physical therapy after experiencing a good deal of physical therapy while rehabilitating her knee. Following this interest, when Pendah enrolled at IU, she enrolled in exercise science and kinesiology through the School of Public Health. Her hope is to use this as a spring board to move on to study physical therapy in graduate school.

Safe Space Life Coaching wishes Pendah the best in all her endeavors academically and in basketball. I am just thrilled that Pendah has allowed us to follow her along on her journey. Thanks Pendah!
