Are you a Faculty of Health student curious about where your degree can take you? Career Spotlight is an opportunity where you can connect with Faculty of Health alumni and learn about their career. This session’s spotlight speaker is Shahad Aali.
Shahad is a Strength and Conditioning Professional and Personal Trainer at Turf Athletics Club. A long time ago, he tore his ACL claiming that it was one of the best and worst things to ever happen to him: "The worst is self-explanatory, I'm out of commission. Obviously, it's not ideal; my aspirations for playing professional baseball went down with the health of my knee. However, with the systematic degradation of my knee came new found knowledge and acceptance of what I can control. If I never tore my ACL, I probably never would've become a trainer. I never would've learned physical rehabilitation, strength performance, human anatomy. I never would've met the very people that inspire me to be the best I can be. I found a pivot, a silver lining, a new beginning. I hope to help you find yours if you need it too."
