Scholarship Recipient Success Stories

Joseph DagherBorn and raised in Milford, Connecticut, I felt a passion for helping people when working at Yale New Haven Hospital. I had a calling when I learned to be patient helping my grandmother walk around the house, when she was normally confined to her chair all day. Even before high school, I volunteered at my local church teaching groups of children - participating in unstructured and structured play activities and supervising them. Living in Milford made Housatonic an even more attractive choice for me.

For those who do not know me, I strive to help people refrain from making bad health habits into making healthy ones. Working to become a doctor of physical therapy, I am determined to make people’s lives healthier. I have gradually developed an increasingly active lifestyle. While working at Yale New Haven Hospital, I attend both Housatonic and Southern Connecticut State University. Before landing a paid position, I volunteered assisting elderly clients with range of motion exercises and daily activities.

Academically, I plan to never stop learning, which is especially essential in the health field as new techniques and findings are constantly being updated. I enjoy obtaining knowledge outside of the classroom by going to local yoga classes and conferences on exercise science. Although I plan to take advantage of everything that HCC has to offer, I plan to give back to the College in later years of my life.
