Why I chose my major

I came in as a biological science major and never connected with my studies. During my second year, after working in the Human Nutrition Lab, I realized I was passionate about nutrition and wanted to expand part of my lifestyle into my education.

What I like most about FACS

I love the connections I have been able to make with teachers due to the smaller class sizes, and the diversity of students that I have met in my classes.

Post-graduation plans

I currently plan to attend medical school. I have been accepted to the Morehouse School of Medicine but am still waitlisted at some other schools so I am unsure where I will commit.
