Hello everyone! smile

My name is Elizabeth, I'm 25 years old and I'm half  Portuguese and half Venezuelan.
I just finished my bachelor's degree in Portugal and I'm super excited to work abroad and learn lots of different approaches to OT while living different cultures. I really don't know where to start, all I know is that my area of interest is mental health (and animals assisted therapy). I wish you could tell me a little bit of the reality of OT in your countries and how difficult or easy it would be for me to get a job there. I'm also really interested in taking some other degrees in those countries, such as master's degree or some post-graduate course.
Just to give you a little bit more of context, my husband has a master's degree in Computer Engineering and he also wants to live more experiences out there. The Scandinavian countries seem to be the ones that give both of us more career opportunities.

I hope you can take a little time to write me back and I hope to personally meet some of you some day! smile
