facebook-noscript Melissa Becerra - Sports & Rehabilitation Graduate From Fremont College

Melissa Becerra

My advice to new students attending Fremont College is to take advantage of the events that the school offers. This is real world experience.
I work as a massage therapist with a company called BodyCharge, a casino called the Hawaiian Gardens Casino, as well as interning for the WNBA Los Angeles Sparks.

Working as an independent contractor with BodyCharge is fun. I travel from Orange County to Simi Valley, massaging at health fairs, events, and corporate offices. Meeting different people every day is great because I am always making new connections. The job at the Hawaiian Gardens Casino is different from any other work I have done before. I massage clients as they are playing their poker games which is unique and challenging at the same time. I also have an internship with the Los Angeles Sparks which is awesome. I get the chance to observe and participate doing therapy at the professional level. The internship also allows me to get involved with high schools which gives me the opportunity to further develop my skills in massage therapy, athletic training, and physical therapy.

Continuing my education at Fremont College was the best decision I could have made for myself. I always knew that I wanted to be involved in sports and Fremont College gave me that opportunity. My favorite thing about Fremont is the instructors and the opportunities they offer their students. Involving students in outside events and putting them in real life situations is great preparation. This allows us to further develop our skills, enhance our communication, and boost our confidence. It also helps us develop relationships that can help jump start our careers.

My advice to new students attending Fremont College is to take advantage of the events that the school offers. This is real world experience. The more experience you get, the better prepared you will be to become what you want. Ask as many questions as possible while you are in school. Most importantly, practice your communication skills. They are vital to you effectively interacting with your clients.
