“Being Able To Help Someone Throughout that Journey Was A Beautiful Thing”


 I’ve lived in a small town my whole life that lacked diversity. Coming to NIU brought opportunities in the areas of my confidence and social life, making it an easier pathway when it came to school. With nutrition, it was a topic that I knew was essential since I was younger as close and extended family members became sick by ways that could have been prevented. Although it was never thought of by the lack of education in the area of nutrition, something I still see today. Because of that, I decided to major in nutrition, dietetics, and wellness. I’m minoring in sociology and hoping to further my education by going to graduate school in the near future.
