Spanish
  I am currently pursuing a minor in Spanish. I have taken three years of Spanish prior to my freshmen year of college. I plan on further developing my Spanish skills in college so I can become fluent in the language. Having this skill will tremendously increase my job opportunities, especially in hospitals where I could possibly be working.   

Work experience

Jan 2008Present

Nanny

For the past three years I have worked for the same family by helping keep and take care of their two young daughters. By serving as a nanny for two young girls I have learned so much about responsibility and taking care of others. The various duties I perform while serving as Nanny include: providing the children guidance in their studies and schoolwork, making the children play games and other indoor and outdoor activities, driving the children around to after school activities, and watching out for the overall safety and well-being of the children.

Work Philosophy

As a rising healthcare professional in the field of dietetics, my personal work philosophy is to educate my clients about how vital a healthy diet is in terms of preventing major diseases and in keeping an overall healthy well-being. Too many people these days are suffering from depression and other mood disorders. What they do not realize is that the foods they are eating could be linked to depression. There is a major need for the country to be informed about their diets and what the foods they are eating could be doing to their body physically, as well as mentally.
