Why did you choose your major/minor, and what did you like most about it?

I chose my major because exercise and health and wellness were a big part of my life, growing up.  I knew that I wanted to educate others about the benefits of healthy living and really change people’s perspective and way of life.  I knew that the Exercise Science major, along with my Public Health major, would allow me to attain the necessary knowledge and experience to do that in the future.
