Kiarrah came to Rider in search of an academic experience that would prepare her for her future in health sciences. What she found was an educational community that embraced collaboration, dedication, and diversity. That strong sense of community is what drew Kiarrah to Rider. Not only was she a student, but she was a member of a learning environment that encouraged excellence and fellowship.
My dedication and perseverance in these challenging classes developed a strong passion in a future career in rehabilitation.
