Welcome to my new website! My name is Joelle Otterstedt. I am 20 years old, and a junior at Pacific University, however, for the next 4 months I will be studying abroad at York St. John University in England. I plan on graduating next year with a major in Exercise Physiology Integrated Physiology, and minors in Psychology and Disability Studies.
I started struggling with mental health in college. The last couple years has been a constant battle with anxiety for me. I am making this website for myself, to document my journey overcoming anxiety, and for my friends and family to see all of my adventures while I am abroad.
In the future I hope to find a part time job coaching swimming while I finish school. After graduating undergrad, I plan on continuing school to become either an occupational therapist or an occupational therapist assistant. I also want to continue traveling to new places.
