I am very very excited to finally get started on this journey! I LOVE nutrition, I LOVE fitness, I LOVE thinking, I LOVE to plan, and I LOVE to organize. I'm about to begin a new chapter that is filled with LOVE. I feel very grateful that I have gained the self power to understand that this is possible. It's possible to do what you love for a living. It's possible to go through life doing what you love and not really having to call it work. What an amazing feeling.
Back in 2009, when I decided to attend Simon Fraser University to get my degree, I didn't know what I wanted to do. I started off in Earth Science because my passion was rocks and the earth. A year later, I moved myself into Health Science because I felt my passion for health getting stronger. Between travelling to Central America, Europe, South America and Asia and semesters at SFU, I finally graduated at the end of 2014 and received my degree in 2015. From there, I did more travelling of course, to celebrate! Despite having this bachelor's degrees in my hands, I still was not 100% sure in where I was going next. It was hard not to think that my next step should be going back and getting my master's in Public Health. But it was more of what I thought was the right thing to do rather than what I actually wanted to do.
A few months later, I applied to a job at a supplement store and loved it. Six months later, I handed in my resignation letter because I knew that it wasn't my life. I already knew I needed to work for myself and make my own dreams come true. I ended up bringing back my passion for rocks and starting my own jewellery business called RockLace. It was an amazing experience and I'm so glad to have done it. However, during this period something just clicked in my mind. My heart and soul kept going back to health. I looked back through my notes on my computer and had multiple notes listing possible career options. They ALL had something to do with nutrition. Then one day, I went to the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition and applied. 1 year later, here I am. My last class in is 2 weeks and my board exam is in a month.
It's funny, exciting and scary about the path we all go through to get to the life we were destined to have. I am now in a position filled with LOVE from my very supporting and loving boyfriend, a mind filled with LOVE and happiness and a career that I LOVE.
Always choose Love.
