Most memorable moment at IHN
Studying at IHN was such a unique and awesome learning experience! Between the instructors and my fellow colleagues, it felt like a space where we really got to learn from each other while learning more about ourselves. The nature walk we did during the Herbal Medicine course was such a peaceful ‘hands-on’ learning experience. This course gave me the knowledge to expand on my understanding of herbs from my Caribbean homeland in order to share their medicinal benefits with others. Also, I really enjoyed the cooking class, Holistic Food Preparation. It was an excellent opportunity to incorporate what we were learning into yummy, nutritious foods.
Favorite class at IHN
Professional Skills Development–it was a nerve-racking course that provided a glimpse of how to be a business owner in the wellness industry. The public speaking and food demonstrations weren’t easy, however I am so grateful that I worked hard to excel in those assignments. Those powerful experiences and tips I learned in that course guided me to the public speaking and workshop avenues that I love today!
