College of Health Solutions transfer student continues his journey helping others
ASU transfer student Kyle Efole always had a passion for sports and helping others. As an athlete and brown belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu holder, Efole wanted to pursue a career where he could help other athletes as well. According to Efole, “It’s a very demanding sport that requires a lot of time and focus. At the same time, there's a lot of injuries that come about in that type of sport. And me being a helpful person, I'm always looking to find solutions, to really be able to help people and to treat them with any sort of physical or mental injuries.”
Although originally planning to begin his college journey in a health discipline at the university level, Efole decided to attend Santa Monica College to earn his lower-division credits first. “Initially I was planning on jumping straight into a four-year university. But I spoke to my father and we were having a conversation about what would be the best situation financially, because I always had the grades to go into a university. When it came to making a business decision, my dad helped me to see the long-term perspective of this, that I could save a lot of money by taking courses at a really good community college and then transfer to a university.”
Utilizing MyPath2ASU, Efole was able to track his coursework and take the right classes, at the right time, prior to transferring. After some time and consideration, Efole chose to pursue his ASU BS degree in sports science and performance programming within the College of Health Solutions. “As someone who suffered countless injuries while playing sports, I've always found the process of recovery quite interesting. In the future, I want to be able to help future athletes who suffer from injuries and have them look at recovery as an interesting process rather than a grudge, and I know that the College of Health Solutions will provide me the best opportunity to do so.”
We invite you to watch as Efole shares his transfer journey, and read more about his path to ASU and plans for his future.
