I’ve never been good at introductions, which is tough, because first impressions are almost impossible to shake once they’re made. Did you know it usually takes about 7 seconds to make a first impression? And a tenth of a second to make an assumption based on appearance? So, I’ll make this brief: My name is Oona, I’m a third year student here at SDSU and I’m a Foods & Nutrition major. I love working with people and food, and hate doing anything half-way. I hope this tendency will serve me well when I’m shoved into the scary adult world after college.
That introduction probably took about seven seconds to read, and hopefully if you’re following the SNO blog, you know what I look like, which, by the way, accounts for about 55% of your first impression of me, according to a communications study done at Harvard.
Here are three tips I’ve found and gathered from 20 years of experience, (not that I was shaking hands with potential employers at the ripe age of zero, but you get the idea) that I think are important to keep in mind when interviewing for a job:
I hope you enjoyed this little blog post. Come back next week; I’ll be posting a blog post or a recipe every Saturday! I’m excited to share ideas, advice, food obsessions, workouts, current events, pop culture, and everything in between (all relating to nutrition, except this one, which is more career oriented). Some posts will be light-hearted and short like this one, but I also want to touch on some serious topics like mental health/holistic health that I think are extremely important. I’m super pumped to have a creative outlet that gives me the opportunity to talk about my passion for food and nutrition, and I hope you all enjoy reading it!
P.S. I’m vegan so look out for some dank plant-based recipes and knowledge!!
My name is Kacey and I’m a freshman here at SDSU majoring in Nutrition. I’m SNO excited to be a blogger for this organization (prepare yourself for plenty of puns).
Nutrition is not just my major. It is also my passion. I am a dedicated long distance runner, so I strongly believe that what you put inside of your body helps you to get the most out of it. I’ve spent the past few years independently learning--through lots of research, lots of reading, and lots of trial and error--just how amazing the human body is and the ways in which we can take care of it. What I discovered from my investigation is that being healthy is not a complicated mystery at all. In fact, it’s really quite simple; eat what makes you feel good, move in a way that empowers you, focus on what ignites your passion, and be around those who enhance your life. What a relief!
That being said, I try to use my nutrition knowledge, which is expanding each day, to advocate for holistic health and natural wellness methods, and to empower those who are typically disempowered by the media and the wellness industry. I believe that ingredients matter more than calories, that how you feel matters more than how you look, and that you can have health at any and every shape, size, color, age, and gender.
So be ready for lots of good eats, tidbits of inspiration and information, and plenty of produce puns. I’m thrilled to be KALE-laborating with SNO and can’t wait to see what this year has in store!
