WELCOME TO MY DIETETICS PORTFOLIO!
Hello! My name is Holly Forbes and I am a student at Oakwood University preparing to be a Registered Dietitian! Here you will find my personal statement, my short and long-term goals, my resume, samples of my academic work, and descriptions of the various invaluable experiences I have had the opportunity to partake in. If you have any questions, please contact me! I would love to hear from you.
UPDATE IN PROGRESS...
There have been some exciting things taking place in regards to my career and I am working to update my site to reflect those changes. Stay tuned, as I will be revamping and rebranding what you see here.
I was born in Trinidad and spent the first 11 years of my life there before emigrating to North America. I've always had a passion for art, but in High School I became increasingly interested in nutrition and its relation to disease. Thus, I decided to study nutrition and dietetics. I have been involved with many clubs and extracurricular organizations, as well as internships that have prepared me for my future as a dietitian. I am excited to see what God has in store for me!
What to know what the Dietetic Internship is All About?
I created a blog about my dietetic internship experience, telling you all about what it is, and what I've done. It's been quite a journey.
SHORT TERM GOALS
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have faith. ~ Matthew 21:22
"All who have accomplished great things have had great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible." ~ Orison Swett Marden
I've accomplished my first short-term goal: graduating Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Dietetics, from Oakwood University on May 12, 2018.
INTERNSHIP & MASTER'S
I have completed my dietetic internship and I am preparing to take the RD Exam
I am eligible to take the national Registration Examination for Dietitians, and I would like to pass this exam on the first try and embark on a new journey!
Holly is an exceptional student with immeasurable character. Rarely have I taught a student with the initiative and constant determination to be successful in all facets of life as Holly. Her concern for others is exemplified especially in her studies. I have witnessed her unbelievable work ethic, determination and passion for assisting others positively impact her peers. Holly has shown that she is a student who not only has talent, but is someone motivated to use all of her talents to achieve her future goals.
