Erica White...

So a couple weeks ago I was going through Wikipedia reading about all the nutritionists they had listed, printing out each one of their bios and reading them all. Very interesting. But one person in particular caught my attention: Erica White. I read about Erica and was firstly amazed at how she became a nutritionist. After dropping out of high school at 17 years old,
... she applied to the Institute of Optimum Nutrition to see if they would accept her, a fifty-three-year-old grandmother with no formal qualifications, for the diploma course in Nutritional Therapy. They accepted her, on account of her obvious interest, and her existing knowledge of candidiasis, but specified that she would have to take a science foundation course before starting the diploma. Her husband, who was a science teacher, helped her to reach the required entrance standard.
If Grandma can do it, we all can.
