Bachelor Food Science and Nutrition


When did you know you wanted to study nutrition?
When I was little I was always in the kitchen baking and making my own food experiments with substitutions. It wasn’t until high school when I started wondering why there weren’t healthier alternatives and substitutions in baked goods. I then started experimenting with healthy fat alternatives in baked goods, wrote a research article and won a college scholarship with it!”


What was your favorite course during your nutrition studies and why?

“I was on the Deans List the last 2 years of college.”
