- Why I chose my major
I developed a love for the topic of nutrition when taking a food and nutrition class in secondary school. I really enjoy learning about the components of food and nutrition in relation to medical conditions. However, I am also interested in learning about flavor profiles and why we chose certain ingredients over others, which is why I decided to double major.
- What I like most about FACS
Every professor I had in FACS has such a passion for teaching and was very understanding and accommodating of my schedules and commitments as a student-athlete, making my college journey very enjoyable and relatively smooth-sailing.
- Post-graduation plans
After graduation, I plan to look for at least a 6-month clinical internship in order to fulfill the criteria to be a practicing dietitian in Singapore. I will also be obtaining my diving coaching certification to coach diving to help the sport and its community grow in Singapore.
