Hello, my name is Raven Aspen. I am eighteen years old and a Freshman at University of Alabama. I am also a part of the Blount Undergraduate Initiative program which serves as a minor and provides a specialized liberal arts education for a select group of students. Currently, I hope to pursue a career in food and nutrition. My areas of interest include becoming a sports nutritionist or having my own private practice. I am also inspired by the recent changes in the world's view on nutrition and wellness. I am fascinated on how food affects the body and mind, the breakthrough in food allergies, the organic/natural foods revolution and alternative medicine. Obviously, as a freshman with much to still learn, I am not positive what I will end up pursuing as a career upon graduation. To me, the most important thing as of now is that I am passionate for all aspects of food and nutrition and I hope to attain as much knowledge about it as possible in the next four years of my life.
