Summary

Allain Sossaman is from New Orleans, Louisiana. She is currently a sophomore at the University of Alabama majoring in Nutrition.

Short Term Goals

I am currently focused on maintaining a strong GPA and continuing to work towards being accepted into the Coordinated Program. I plan to graduate from the University of Alabama in 2014. Upon graduation, I hope to obtain an internship to broaden my knowledge of weight management and pediatric nutrition,  and sit for the RD exam.

Long Term Goals

I would like to, initially, work through a hospital as a dietitian for children struggling with their weight and eating habits. With this experience, I hope to join a practice focusing on children while  promoting healthy eating and lifestyle. I want to use my passion for nutrition to make a positive impact on others by helping them feel their best while achieving their best possible health.
