Introduction – Jenita Hattingh

Hello, my name is Jenita Hattingh and I am a 4th year Physiotherapy student at the University of the Western Cape, in Cape Town, South Africa. My interest in physiotherapy started from a very young age and it grew as I learnt more about the profession. As a student, I’ve definitely realised that there is so much more to physiotherapy than I originally thought. I would be lying if i had to say that I love the profession, mainly because it pushes me out of my comfort zone. Even so ,I learn new things daily and I believe that as I grow in my knowledge and my confidence, I will adapt better and love the profession more. Physiotherapy is challenging but in my short experience, it has proven to be rewarding.

I am excited for ethics as a module. I feel that my class is very separated and it has a lot to do with our lack of understanding of each other. I feel that ethics opens up a platform to voice our opinions and let each other know about ourselves in a safe environment. This could be a fantastic way to learn about our classmates and get a deeper understanding of them.

With regard to the online blog, I am slightly skeptical but only because it pushes me out of my comfort zone. The idea of sharing my thoughts & opinions with so many other people, and opening myself up to their criticism, is scary.  However, I am open to the experience. It offers a great opportunity to receive other peoples thoughts & opinions which could help to change and better my own. This year as a whole is going to be a challenging one, so I might as well challenge my thought processes while I’m at it.

  1. I definitely hope that this module will bring our class closer and on a level where we understand each other well and I hope we get to a point where each of us make an effort to get to know each other 🙂
