What’s your dream and why do you want to Make It Happen?

Ever since I was little I have had a huge passion for food and nutrition. I love everything to do with health, biology, physical education and hospitality, which is the reason why I wish to become a dietitian. I think it is a great career to pursue because it’s a needed job in our society; obesity is coming at a huge rate. I want to send a message to people that they need to look after themselves and not to always go after the typical media view on image, to be unique to themselves and healthy.

At what point did you realise this was something you wanted to do? 

I think it was at school when I was doing hospitality and I got top in the year!

You’re only 16 so you’re still at school, but where do you see yourself in the next five years?

Hopefully I will be at uni and doing my degree in Dietetics. When I leave uni, I want to do what Nadia Lim does, have a cookbook and everything.

Why is Nadia your ultimate inspiration?

She is an inspiration to me because she has shown me that anything is possible if you set your mind to it. Nadia Lim is also a dietitian and is one of the main reasons why I chose this career to pursue. She promotes healthy eating all around the world with My Food Bag. From her starting this business and watching her success, she inspired me to just go for what I want no matter how big or scary the obstacle is in front of me; I just have to give it all I’ve got and work my butt off to achieve the results I want.

As part of Make It Happen we are going to give you the chance to meet with Nadia. Does that make you want to freak out?!

Yes! [laughs]

What do you think your going to be like when you meet her?

I don’t know… maybe a bit starstruck? It will be really good!

When you’re not at school and trying to pursue your dream, what hobbies do you enjoy?

Equestrian, yeah I am really into horse riding.

Are you just going to be glued to the TV when it comes to the Olympics?

Yeah definitely!

You’re a huge advocate of health, exercise and nutrition… obviously, but we all have to have balance, right? What is your ultimate indulgence?

Whittaker’s dark chocolate [laughs].

Share your greatest life hack…

Do not listen to what others have to say of you, we are all unique and special in our own ways.
