Why the name Sincerely Shans?
I created this name to let my audience know that everything I share with others is authentic.
How can someone become a dietitian?
It really differs depending on the province/state/country you plan to study in. I recommend doing a quick search online for the programs in your area. I attend Pace University, and I am completing a coordinated program for a Master of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics; this includes an internship that consist of 1,200 hours of supervised practice at several locations, and is to be followed by a jurisprudence exam. Upon completion of all of this I must maintain my credential through continuing education credits for as long as I hope to practice as a Registered Dietitian.
How can someone become a health coach or nutritionist?
There are quite a few schools that offer certification to become a health coach. I received training as a health and wellness coach, that is credentialed under the International Consortium for Health & Wellness Coaching, from Noom Inc. I have also heard that integrativenutrition.com is pretty good as well.
Where are you from?
My parents are from Jamaica, and I've been there several times. I identify as an African American from Brooklyn, New York, as that is where I was born and raised.
How long have you been plant-based?
On-and-off since July 2017.
When did you start making Youtube videos?
I made videos on-and-off since March 2013. I have since deleted some videos that were not in my current niche. (I do not recommend deleting your videos, just make them private. I wish I had done this in the past!)
What's your favorite way to pass time?
Watching YouTube videos, organizing/planning, reading, and spending time with others!
