Meet Jordan Scott

Our next “Living Today” video features Jordan Scott, 22, whose biggest challenge involves gaining weight. But through her love of studying nutrition, she's been able to overcome her fear of the inevitable: a feeding tube.

I was instantly drawn to Jordan's smile and her calm, positive vibe. How can someone who has gone through so much in her life still keep such a positive attitude? Maybe it's dancing in the fields with her fiancé, Jason, or eating apples with peanut butter. Either way, filming with her was so much fun. I felt as if we were instant friends from the moment we said hello and, yeah, I'm special enough to have had her ask if she could follow me on Instagram! Insert smile here.

As a grad student studying to be a dietitian, she thought it would be interesting to do her case study on another person with cystic fibrosis with the same weight and gender getting a feeding tube. I thought this was a fascinating idea and I hope you enjoyed watching her describe her results as much as I did!
