Nokubonga Shabalala

I am a young, passionate, hard-working, competent and driven young dietitian. I recently completed a Bsc Degree in Dietetics from the University of Pretoria. I have completed courses in diabetes, breastfeeding and in nutrition and feeding during the covid 19 pandemic. During my community service year and a few months in practice, I have developed a drive to want to learn more in the sphere and scope of dietetics. I have personal experiences with many disease conditions, either directly or through family and friends. This is why I have special interests in chronic, lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease, diabetes as well as interests in PCOS and matters of fertility.

I have always had weight issues especially during childhood and adolescence. Seeing and speaking to a dietician changed my life for the better back then, and drove me to wanting to be a dietician myself. Being able to educate and give the appropriate and individualized advice and knowledge to clients/ patients is extremely fulfilling. As a person who is still trying to reach her nutritional goals, I am able to relate to clients in a special manner and am able to treat them with the empathy and support they deserve.

My biggest accomplishment so far in life has been acquiring this degree and paying off my student loans. Growing up as an only child on a farm, I aspire to raise a large family of my own someday. But for now, my primary focus is building my career.
