This Pirate makes an impactthrough nutrition education
Karsyn Tall, a senior at East Carolina University, is passionate about nutrition and wellness.
What advice do you have for other students? College should be like climbing a mountain, not a plateau. You should continuously strive to challenge yourself and try new things until you graduate or reach the peak. However, find a balance because too much weight on your back, whether school work or involvement on campus, will make the journey hard to complete or cause you to steer off track.
