Student Success Story: Julian Cobos

My experience with the Urban Fellows program was as rewarding as it was rigorous. My internship was with North Texas Food Bank and I knew even before entering Urban Fellows that I wanted to intern with this organization.North Texas Food Bank’s vision for a hunger-free North Texas is one that I share and felt called to contribute to. Moreover, I gained invaluable skills that I can take with me throughout my nutrition career. I was an intern for the Nutrition Education team at NTFB so I was able to shadow and even teach some nutrition classes related to nutrition basics, food budgeting, and food safety to low-income populations. Community nutrition is a major practice area within the field of dietetics so interning with the North Texas Food Bank has provided me with real world experience necessary to become a community dietitian. I most likely would not have been able to pursue an unpaid internship in the nonprofit sector without Urban Fellows, so it is safe to say that this program has substantially furthered my development as a future community leader. -Julian Cobos
