||Secondary Education (Social Sciences) and a minor in Sociology
||My project is focused on role modeling healthy eating in which we consider best practices, particularly family style meal practices, to aid children from 2 to 5 years in establishing healthy eating behaviors.
||I am currently learning about qualitative research-based methods. I hope to learn general research skills from literature review to academic writing to data analysis.
||Long-term I would like to enter graduate school and then eventually gain a PhD and work at an academic institution and continue teaching and research.
|How will the project experience help you achieve your future career goals?
||The project will teach me essential research skills with the opportunity of applying them in an actual research setting which will benefit me as I continue conducting further research in my educational career.
|Top 3 strengths that contribute to the project:
||Strong writing skills, a desire to learn as much as possible about conducting research, a background in the field of education which directly deals with children of varying ages.
||I am the biggest Smiths and Morrissey fan you could possibly meet in the state of Nebraska.
