Hey there, I’m Beeks and I’m currently working towards my Masters degree in Nutrition Communication at Ryerson University! Although I’m still figuring out my path in dietetics, I know that I have a strong passion for content creation and wellness.
Coming from quite a traditional Chinese home and growing up around Western influences, I had a difficult time balancing two cultures— especially when it came to nutrition! I felt the constant need to be accepted by my peers in the field. Sometimes I found myself rejecting Chinese nutrition and wellness because I truly believed that Western dietetics was the only correct approach.
I could not have been more wrong.
Diversifying dietetics is beautiful and empowering. It gives us the opportunity to learn from one another’s experiences. It allows individuals from different backgrounds to have a voice and to proudly represent their communities.
