From Lithuania to Orlando

“I've dreamed about volunteering at NextStep Orlando for a long time. Being at the right place at the right time made it finally happen. The time I spent at NextStep Orlando was more than I could have expected! I got to assist with activity based trainers when working with their clients and observe the techniques and methods they use. Many questions were asked regarding paralysis recovery and I got all the answers back. I was highly impressed by the passion, empathy and professionalism that the trainers put into their work. Laughter and positive outlook on life mixed with the knowledge of the trainers creates a welcoming environment for the clients and everyone who steps through NextStep Orlando doors. The experience I had at NextStep Orlando was one of the kind. I've grown as a specialist and expanded the understanding of paralysis recovery. Meeting the staff, trainers, and all the clients at NextStep Orlando reminded me that anything is possible as long as you have a dream. AČIŪ (Thank you in Lithuanian) for making this happen!”- Eimantė Jackūnaitė, our intern from Lithuania Sept. 17- Oct. 22nd. We miss you already!
