// THE MOMENT //
I don’t have one specific moment, rather a collection of CHAARG moments. I first heard about CHAARG when I went to a yoga class with my two best friends on the day we all left for our respective colleges freshman year. We all went off to school, + at the involvement fair at Syracuse, I didn’t see anything about CHAARG. When I came back home for Thanksgiving break, all of my friends came home from their schools talking about this awesome organization, CHAARG. I figured if all of them came home from different schools across the country talking highly of CHAARG, there must be something pretty special about it. I started looking at the website + blog — I became hooked. Over the summer my best friend got me doing some of the CHAARG workouts + that was the last push I needed to apply to bring CHAARG to Syracuse — I haven’t looked back since!
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… fish tacos w/ baked tilapia
Favorite Indulgence… The Tonight Dough Ice Cream from Ben & Jerry’s
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with?
Adele. Hands down. 1] She is queen. 2] when she Instagrammed that picture of her at the gym last year, I have never related more + I feel like she would be such a blast to workout with. I feel like we would both benefit from a nice yoga #sweatsesh.
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Sorry by Justin Bieber [I am truly not sorry for any dance moves I break out when that song comes on!]

My passion is… anything that brings joy into the lives of others. I find myself getting passionate about a lot of things, but all of them bring joy to other people! I’m really passionate about Dance Marathon, theatre, Syracuse, performing, comedic television shows, philanthropies, dance, CHAARG… the list could go on!
I am #inCHAARG because… Not only do I want to motivate girls to be the best version of themselves — whatever that means for them, I also need motivation from my fellow CHAARGies! The CHAARG community has really inspired me to find my fit + take control of the healthy life I am more than capable of living. I really couldn’t have done that without them! I am so so SO excited for Syracuse to experience this community : )
