Statement of Interest on Application of a PhD in Nutrition Program
During my childhood, I was unaware of the health complications that could be triggered by poor eating habits. Therefore, my body weight increased tremendously to the point where I was unable to control it anymore. Because of this, the interest of understanding healthy eating habits was triggered in me. Apart from wanting to shed off some weight, I also wanted to understand background information of maintaining a lifestyle that was healthy. On the basis of my experience as a child, upon graduation from high school, I was interested in studying my post-secondary education in the field of nutrition which matched my career passion. I pursued my Bachelor Degree in Food Science and Nutrition in King Saudi University, Saudi Arabia. I participated in events and conferenced in the course of my undergraduate program that equipped me with the relevant dietary and nutritional planning skills.
I appreciate your efforts in the nutrition faculty in the University since it has helped me improve research environment among students who pursue PhD degree in nutrition. I am confident by joining your faculty for my PhD degree, it will be beneficial in the theme of nutrition and it will also cover related topics such as population health and genetics. Taking into consideration your deep experience and knowledge on the field of nutrition, I will be delighted to be your student. Throughout my PhD degree, I will carry out extensive research on the topic. Based on the background information on your website, you possess a wide range of experience and understanding on anthropological and psychological techniques of investigating nutritional factors among communities and individuals. I would concede your acceptance to work with me in gaining experience and knowledge in the field of nutrition since it will build a fruitful understanding and cooperation based on our mutual passion for nutrition.
