Major: Nutritional Sciences
Class Standing: Junior
Hello! My name is Panache and I am a junior majoring in Nutritional Sciences under the dietetics option at Penn State. I am from Malaysia, a beautiful tropical country where it is sunny all year round. On campus, I am actively involved in UNICEF and also a teaching assistant for the Department of Nutrition.
In my free time, I enjoy watching movies, doing Pilates, eating (I’m a huge foodie), cooking, and hanging out with family and friends. I absolutely love travelling because I get to experience different cultures, meet new people and visit famous places. As an outdoor enthusiast, I also love hiking, backpacking, and jungle trekking. This summer I will travel to Yellowstone, where I plan to hike a lot and explore the natural wonders of the park. Therefore if you need a hike Mt. Nittany buddy, I am your girl! After graduation, I hope to obtain a dietetic internship and become a Registered Dietitian.
This will be my first year being an AASIA mentor and I look forward to helping you navigate through the college transition and guide you to success. Feel free to reach out to me about anything. Get excited, it’s going to be a great year!
