Mengyi Dong, MS Nutrition '15

Mengyi DongMengyi Dong, MS '15, is a Manager, Goma Tei Ramen.

I chose the Department of Nutrition and Food Studies at Mason because I felt the program had room to grow and evolve since it’s still a relatively new program. The professors in the department are very helpful and supportive. I believe I was able to utilize what I learned in my classes in the projects that we completed, and I have taken the skills I learned in nutrition education, food safety, and menu development and applied them to my current job as a restaurant manager. I hope I can contribute to the program’s continuing growth.
