Hannan Amin, Manchester Met Student

“MetMUnch has given me the opportunity to continue learning outside of university lectures and put the knowledge that I was learning to good use. It has given me confidence to engage with the public, promoting how to lead a healthy lifestyle with a focus on sustainability throughout, both of which will be required when I graduate and begin to work in the field of nutrition.

Interacting with the public has been a fun and rewarding task; we have worked with individuals from all different ages, such as young school children at a spelling bee final, where we indicated the importance of healthy eating to their education, college students where we emphasised the impact that Fairtrade produce makes on global sustainability, and families at a Manchester festival, where we delivered wholesome meals and discussed how to eat and live healthily on a budget.

These events have all given me valuable experiences that I will be able to use in my future career, and they have all been enjoyable events that I feel have helped me settle into university life well.”
