I’m a professional dietitian, but when I moved to Canada from Brazil one and a half years ago I didn’t know how to get into my field here. An agency for newcomers referred me to the Internationally Educated Dietitians Pre-registration Program at The Chang School. The program helped me understand the Canadian market, the expectations of my profession, and the skills I needed to succeed. I also met dietitians practising here in Canada, who talked to me about my career goals and gave me advice. I’m hoping to find work in an obesity clinic and to make a difference in people’s lives by teaching them about healthier lifestyles.
