Health, fitness, and eating disorders have been a huge interest for me throughout my life. At a young age I became interested in what exactly happens to the food you eat and what it does to your body. Nutrition is one of the most mind-blowing factors of the human body and I will always be ready and willing to learn more about it. As a competitive swimmer of sixteen years, exercise and fitness has always been a part of my life also. What exercise does to your body and the long-term impact it makes on your life has also been an interest of mine for many years. My interest for eating disorders happened when my older sister was diagnosed with Anorexia and Bulimia. She has struggled with it for many years and I have been by her side the entire time trying to help her overcome this mental illness and love her body for the way it is. Essentially, anything relating to the human body and food has always enthralled me which is why I have chosen a Food and Nutrition major. I hope to be able to combine my love of food, fitness, and nutrition into a job that will excite me and keep me motivated to help others for the rest of my life.
