A Little about Extracurriculars
Since I last wrote about my extrcurriculars (Having Fun Ouside of Class) things haven’t changed too much. I am still the co-president of the Student Dietetic Association (SDA), am obviously still a PAL and I still work at Children’s Hospital & Research Center Oakland. Something new that I added on this semester is the position as a Research Assistant for Dr. Felming. She is the chief investigator of a study that is assessing a nutrition and fitness intervention in a population of children at risk for developing Type Two Diabetes. As a research assistant, I am helping with the development of standard nutrition lessons so that one day this intervention program can go national. It has been a great opportunity for me to use my nutrition skills and demonstrate my creativity. To be involved in such an important project that happens to be conducted by one of my favorite professors on campus has been very exciting.
Since I have already written about my extracurriculars, I thought I would write a little about what else I like to do with my free time. Lately I have been enjoying the outdoors. Anytime there is beautiful whether I take advantage of it! When I visit back home, I really enjoy taking my dogs to the beach. Also, over spring break I went snowboarding at Heavenly, a ski resort in South Lake Tahoe. I had never boarded on the south shore, but I heard the view of the lake was beautiful so I was eager to try it. I had a wonderful time and the view was gorgeous. That trip made me realized that I need to make more time in my busy schedule to go snowboarding more often. It is really important to do things that you enjoy in your free time. That’s what I love about extracurriculars; they are something you do because you love them and you can always change it up or add more at any time.
I highly suggest getting involved in extracurriculars. Whether it’s academically related, like becoming involved in a club or research project or socially related like joining the ski team, Berkeley has a lot to offer!
