Clesencia Ooga, Intern


My name is Clesencia Ooga. I am a senior at Montclair State University, graduating in May 2024 with a Bachelor's of Science in Nutrition and Food Science, under a concentration of Applied Nutrition and Wellness, with a minor of Public Health. My future plan is to be a health educator working with all kinds of ages. Working as an intern at FSCS Health and Wellness in Paterson Public Schools excites me more because I am doing exactly what I love and enjoy—educating children and parents about Nutrition and its benefits to their health. My goal is to change someone's life and make them view Nutrition health from another positive angle.
