Sample of Work/Class Project

I volunteered in a food pantry passing out healthy food the the homeless people and the poor. 

Long-Term Goals

  • I desire to one day become a registered Dietitian and work with obese children or people with eating disorders. I would like to help them make healthier life style choices and work out a meal plan that will suit them as well as possible. 
  • One day I would like to own my own practice.

Initial goals

  • I would like to pass my Registered Dietitian (RD) exam to become a registered dietitian.
  • I need to expand my knowledge and skills with an Anatomy class to strengthen my skills of knowing how the body works. 
  • I desire to apply for an internship and receive the one I want.
  • I need to make connections with the right people.
  • I would like to be as successful as possible at my job and acquire all the skills I need by being well prepared from all of my classes. I want to be able to serve my clients as well as I can.
  • I want to seek involvement with local dietetic associations.
