I am writing to you to express my interest in a career in the nutrition field. My love for nutrition started when I was just a young girl who loved to eat! My mom, an avid health nut”, was always taking me to meet with her friend who was an herbalist or would have me tag along with her to an acupuncture appointment. I was familiarized with various forms of healing from the very beginning. As I entered into high school, I began researching and reading about the ties between the food industry, pharmaceuticals, and our government. The more I learned, the more frustrated I became at how the majority of products lining the grocery store shelves are hardly nutrient dense food at all. I couldn't help but think of the people out there with all sorts of chronic illness that aren't getting proper nutrition to aid their bodies in the healing process. Not only are chronic illness sufferers going without proper nutrition but so are every-day people who are uneducated about making healthy food choices. I knew then that I wanted to combine my love for food, education, and helping others in a way that would build a career in nutrition.
I am currently enrolled at the University of Tennessee where I am majoring in nutrition. In addition to all that I am learning in my current studies, I possess knowledge from my own experiences that will help me to relate to those seeking nutrition counseling. I myself am on a gluten free diet which has given me extensive experience based knowledge into the world of gluten free cooking. I am also familiar with the paleo diet as I use many paleo recipes in my own cooking so as to avoid processed sugars, gluten, additives, artificial coloring etc. I love to cook and am working on building that skill as this is an area of education I would like to couple with nutrition. I tend to be a very quick learner, especially with health related topics, and I believe that an internship experience would not only solidify what I am learning in school but also allow me to apply what I am learning.
I've attached my resume complete with references for you to review. Thank you for taking the time to look over my credentials and for considering me for an internship with you. I look forward to talking with you soon.
