Growing up in a family and society where diabetes, cardiovascular disease,obesity, high blood pressure, and cancer have been very prevalent, I have grown to have a passion for helping people live longer and healthier lives. I am going to be taking this passion and majoring in Dietetics where I hope to become a Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetes Educator. With being from Minnesota, and experiencing its ever changing seasons, I have developed a love for a variety of different outside hobbies and interests. In warmer seasons I enjoy hiking, running, tennis, ultimate frisbee, and biking and during what seems like the endless winter in Minnesota I enjoy downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and knitting scarves and hats for others. I also love to try new things whenever I get a chance. I recently tried snorkeling and scuba diving while I was in the Dominican Republic this past year and it was one of the most amazing experience getting to see a breathtaking view of the beautiful deep ocean and all that lives down there. In the next coming years I wish to travel abroad to Italy where my great uncle once lived and embrace the culture and all it has to offer. Next summer I am also going to be able to fulfill a dream of mine and become a certified yoga instructor at CorePower Yoga. As of right now, I am taking each day as it comes and embracing every second of it!
