// THE MOMENT //
The moment you knew you wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at your university… When I was a Virtual CHAARG member, I fell in love with CHAARG during the #SBFP. I loved having a Bolt Babe– for the first time ever I had a friend who held me accountable + honestly cared about me// my fit journey. During one of the weeks, I learned how important rest was, + we were challenged to try meditation. When I saw that the UCF gym, the RWC, offered free weekly meditation classes I was ecstatic. Only 3 kids showed up [ 2 whom fell asleep] + I realized that UCF has so much that even I wasn’t taking advantage of. With access to the RWC + the support of thousands of CHAARG girls, I knew CHAARG would change lives if it came to UCF. Plus UCF’s motto is CHAARG On– how perfect!
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when… I took fitness seriously for the first time when I joined the rowing team in high school. Not only was I physically tested more than ever before, but rowing taught me the importance of the *mental* aspects of health + wellness that I never knew about before. I became the coxswain– the motivator of the boat + fell in love. I currently cox for the women’s team at UCF; the combination of coxing + CHAARG is extremely rewarding!
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… Scallops + shrimp, any combination!
Favorite Indulgence… Jeremiah’s Italian Ice– italian ice + ice cream swirled together [ a Florida must have!]
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? I would 100% workout with Michael Phelps. Warm up, swimming, weight room.. I would want to do it all. + be able to wear one of his medals 😉
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Formation by the Queen B
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Finding what makes other girls become the best they can be ++ pushing on it! From the team to simply a friend, I love seeing other girls thrive.
I am #inCHAARG because… I have never been in better health — physically + mentally– than I am now. When your body + mind are running well, you are unstoppable. I know that with the availability of thousands of girls supporting me, I will always be able to get out of my hard times + keep this state of health going.
// LIVE //
3 words to describe you are… Friendly, bold, + determined.
Fun Fact… I have quite an obsessive, over the top planner. + It is my life.
Favorite life quote…
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Marianne Williamson
