Brief excerpt from interview: With classmates, we became slightly closer because of this joined experience... I became a little closer with my professor, who is also my program director, because she's a very nice lady, like a grandma. She's cultivating the new batch of future dieticians and she got the go-ahead for an internship program within the state. She's very involved... And this class, because you have to meet with her and write your journals, she gives a lot of value to those things. It brought you a little closer with her... And my relationships with my supervisors, who were really nice people. I think I see my major in relation to my future, like how it segues into it. It's phasing us out of the classroom. You actually do what you study in school... I didn't get the placement I wanted. I wanted to do more clinical work, but it's very hard to find that. That would have been even more exciting or different for me. I'm applying to the internship program here.
