Kennedy Reederis a sophomore from St. Louis, Missouri. She is a health science student with an emphasis in rehabilitation science. Kennedy plans to attend physical therapy school and obtain her DPT, where she hopes to work as a sports physical therapist and open her own clinic for athletes one day.
“Health care is constantly evolving and there will always be a need for physical therapists in the medical field,” Kennedy says. “Therefore, it is a great option to pursue at Mizzou because the School of Health Professions has many career fairs and internship opportunities that will increase your chance of being offered a job after graduation.”
In addition to being a student ambassador, Kennedy has been involved in campus organizations such as the United Ambassador’s Diversity Recruitment Team, Mizzou Black Women’s Initiative, Trio, and Minorities in Sports. In her free time, Kennedy enjoys reading insightful books, watching Netflix or Youtube, and thinking of more ways to make money.
