Year 4, UBC Food, Nutrition & Health
Like many students in my program, I love food and so you may find me snacking behind my bag or thinking about my next meal after I finish one. What I’m most passionate about is learning how food and nutrition affects our body from birth to old age and exploring the multifaceted nature of nutrition. Beyond vitamins and minerals, I also enjoy promoting and taking part in health and wellness initiatives within diverse communities. When I’m not studying and working in the community, I may be hiking, cooking and/or learning French!
Food can provide us with the joy and comfort that we often seek in our busy lives, but with only $1 to spend per meal – does food truly provide the same degree of comfort? This is what I will discover by the end of the challenge and I look forward to hearing about experiences from other participants as well!
