After multiple attempts to contact Registered Dietitians (RD) to see if they offered students the opportunity to “shadow,” I finally got a response back! And that response stated “I would be more than happy to have you come in and shadow. I am actually looking for a permanent intern possibly for hire in a year or so, if you are interested in that we can talk about that as well.” You can only imagine my surprise and excitement!
Almost daily, over the last month I have contacted Dietitians in the metro Atlanta area, that specialize in eating disorders, to ask if they offered students the opportunity to “shadow.” What better way to gain knowledge and experience than actually watching an RD live. I had become frustrated because no one was getting back to me….until this past week!
Thank you Jesus! It is so amazing how the “stars are aligning” and the opportunities are falling in place. There is still so much more hard work to be done, and I have faith that I will blossom into an excellent Dietitian.
