Cooking Merit Badge Counselor (Sept 2012 & August 2014)
I qualified to become a cooking merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts of America. I then taught two groups of 12-year-old scouts in Lehi, Utah about the food groups, food safety, allergies and celiac disease, and meal planning. I used interactive teaching methods such as a Glo Germ demonstration to show the importance of washing hands thoroughly. I also created a game to review their understanding of the content and supervised as they prepared a meal.
Leader of Church Women's, Young Women's, and Children's Auxiliary Organizations (May 2012-July 2014)
I have held various positions in my church organization. These have included meeting with women in one-on-one interviews, organizing and supervising the service system for 90 women in my church unit, teaching biweekly religious lessons to a group of 10 to 15 teenage girls, and leading children in lessons and weekly activities on Sunday.
Vice President of Service for the Student Dietetic Association
(Sept 2011-Apr 2013)
As the vice president of service for my club at BYU, I lead a committee which planned community service projects for a club of about 80 members. We planned service activities such as a food drive and a sub-for-santa for a local family in need. I also organized a weekly service opportunity for club members to help sort food at the local food bank. This leadership role has taught me how to organize events, lead a committee, and contact community members and organizations.
Breakfast Server at Local Soup Kitchen (Oct 2010-June 2011)
I prepared and served breakfast to hundreds of locals at a soup kitchen. I learned about foodservice systems that run off donations and government funding. Since they work with new volunteers regularly, I was able to analyze their method of teaching basic principles of sanitation and service.
