“Do not stress – strategize. Do not worry – work.”Christine Ngo, BSc, BASc, MPH (c)
Christine Ngo sits down with Sarah this week to discuss and reflect on her application process. During the final year of her Food and Nutrition undergrad, Christine had an incredibly heavy course load. She had to learn how to manage her time, prioritize tasks, and how to ask for help in order to put her best foot forward on her applications. She shares the invaluable techniques she used in order to succeed, as well as what she wishes she would have done differently.
Christine was born and raised in Toronto has always been a foodie. She holds a previous degree in Life Sciences from McMaster University, and always knew she wanted to work in health care but wasn’t quite sure where. It was taking nutrition courses at McMaster that introduced her to the world of dietetics, and she went on to complete the Food and Nutrition program at Ryerson.
With the goal of completing her second undergrad in three years instead of four, Christine was tasked with a heavy course load on top of which she applied to two masters programs and three internships. Despite casting this wide net, Christine had the goal of attending the University of Toronto for the Masters in Public Health which is where she is currently in her final year. Looking back, Christine wishes she had spent a bit less time trying to be an ideal candidate and more time focusing on what she wanted, but she is grateful for the time management skills she learned and the support she was given by her peers.
