My long-term goal is to become a RD (registered dietitian). But I completed a DT program to see if I would really like the field of dietetics. I fell in love with all my classes and am looking forward to completing school. I have been postponing this test for almost a year because I have terrible test anxiety. Now I feel like I can really move on. Thank you for sharing in my joy!
