Which committee did you serve on for the first rotation?
I am currently the Student Affiliate Representative. This position serves as a liaison between the Academy and the Affiliate and lasts the full 9 months of the program.

What has been your favorite experience so far?
My favorite experience so far has been communicating with various members of IAND, including the president, and reaching out to other students for certain projects, such as the development of this webpage. I enjoy making connections and this leadership program is the perfect opportunity to do just that.   

What benefits has the program brought you?
The student representative position comes with a lot of responsibility. I have benefited from this role by improving a number of skills such as time management, communication, and of course, leadership. It is possible to be working on multiple projects at once so staying organized is key.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I see myself working as a registered dietitian potentially specializing in pediatrics or oncology. I am excited to enter my dietetic internship rotations and find what best suits my interests.
