Based on a variety of personal experiences, I became very interested in the role of foods and nutrition. During my last year of high school, my favorite who had a successful business succumbed to a strange aliment. He was tired all the time and was diagnosed to live only 1 year. While he didn’t have cancer, his blood work had many abnormalities the doctors couldn’t diagnose.
He began to seek out other doctors who ultimately recommended that his see a dietitian. This changed his life. He started to eat low fat foods that’s packed in vitamins, quit smoking and drinking and started to exercise regular bases. One year later, he could get out of bed, live as an full energetic person as he had before.
This made him inspired to study nutrition in America. I was overwhelmed after I knew his history and never looked at food the same way again. It is clear to me now that how people eat and what people eat is an important factor in achieving optimum health, that just exercise isn’t enough. I am inspired to explore the field of dietetics which is very broad and dietitians perform a variety of functions in their jobs. As a dietitian, I can work in a wide variety of positions such as a food service manager in commercial or institutional, a community nutritionist, such as the WIC and Headstart, a consultant to major food corporations such as Kellogg’s and Kraft or go into sales. I am very interested in working in a position where I can help people develop habits to improve their health.
The fast food chains we have come to know and support make up one of the biggest industries in the nation. Every day, these corporate giants churn out Whoppers and Happy Meals to millions of consumers. However, it is not a coincidence that so many people are attracted to these chain restaurants. It is a result of ingenious marketing. Over the years, the fast food industry has used many cleverly ...
I may eventually go on to graduate school to advance my knowledge of dietetics. My cultural background will be a great contribution to the Washington State University Coordinated Dietetics Program. Being raised in a Malasian, having visited different countries, and now living in the United States, I have experienced the similarities and differences among many diverse cultural groups and nutritional diets. This broad exposure to different cultures allowed me to relate to different types of people by understanding their ways and beliefs, a quality that will help me work well with other students and people.
For example, many Malasian will eat something that is unhealthy in nutritional standards and has no benefits to the body. However, they will continue to consume it because it is common in their culture. I would like to teach Malasian people to look at food from a cultural and nutritional angle to be more healthful. For example, as a result of my education I have decreased my consumption of beef and my meals now contain less fat, and I eat fewer eggs each day. Changing my Malasian diet improved my life and I believe I can help others to make a similar change. I will be able to fulfill my greatest goal in life of helping others through experiences I have seen and felt first hand, and in doing this I would consider myself to be a good dietitian.
My long-range professional goals are to develop food safety programs, manage food services and / or develop food products. I see the need to bring food safety guidelines to Asian countries to avoid preventable diseases. I would like to introduce new menus to both Eastern and Western people to create a more balanced diet. For example, more raw vegetables for people in Asia for higher nutrient content and increasing the awareness of the high metal content in some seafood. In the American culture, I would create desserts catered to American taste using traditional Asian ingredients because they utilize more natural foods like beans, nuts, tofu, and fruit to make arrays of sweets that are lower in saturated fats and higher in nutritional value. For instance, teaching the public how to use tofu to get the desired texture in reduced fat cheesecake and brownies.
The change of our social lives needs a standard of teaching that can go with us. the K to 12 education system is a new educational program in the Philippines that is originated in U.S.A, and this program covers kindergarten and 12 years of basic education that is composed of six years in elementary, six years in high school that is also composed of four years in junior high and two years in senior ...
In addition to the necessary education background for success in the profession, I also have excellent communication skills. My short-range professional goal is to teach and counsel in communities, especially children, elderly, and pregnant women about food nutrition and food safety. Teaching and working as a facilitator has helped me improve my communication skills. I am constantly meeting new people and feel that I am able to connect in both a personal and professional manner. Not only am I a good conversationalist, but I am also an excellent listener. In addition to working, I have been doing volunteer work since I was 10 years old, as this was an important emphasis from my parents while I was growing up.
One of my most rewarding experiences was teach children with less opportunities about the world. To help them understand the greater beauty and possibilities they could have by working hard in their studies. Seeing the world is connected and depend on each other. Currently, I volunteer at the Ronald McDonald house, the program is to prepare chronically mentally ill adults to integrate in the community. I have developed various menus for different die tactic needs, and I am currently preparing display materials for cafeteria to teach participants about healthy eating in my college also. I have applied for the internship because I am proud to be a student at Rush University Medical Center.
It was my dream to study here and learn from other Human Nutrition students. Also, the Coordinated Dietetics Program has a large outreach with the community through the internship. I will have opportunities to work with different kinds of clients, retail and inpatient food services at Rush and a community hospital, complete with the on-site bakery, in addition to working with many ethnic groups. Also, I will have a valuable knowledge learning about food service management. This school has everything I could want from an internship program and I will do everything I can to make the school as proud of me as I am of the school.
