Workout I Want To Try: I have always wanted to try aerial yoga!

// THE MOMENT //
I heard about CHAARG when the CHAARG Instagram commented on my sorority’s Instagram! I spent hours reading the entire CHAARG Blog! I realized quickly that I had not stumbled across another women’s health organization — I had found an entire community. I spent all of my freshman year *participating* in a lot of things, but I never felt fulfilled because I didn’t find a place that encouraged me to become a leader or promised to help me become myself. When I saw there were applications open to become an ambassador, I knew I had to try! It was hands down the best decision I have ever made + I’m so excited to see what CHAARG will bring to Wisco!
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… After going vegetarian, my love for veggies has grown– I eat broccoli for breakfast + I can’t go a day without eating something dipped in hummus.
Favorite Indulgence… Coffee! For me coffee is definitely about more than just the caffeine fix — I love studying in cozy coffee shops + I am always switching up my order [always with almond milk ; )]
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? Honestly #lifegoals is for Patrick Swayze to appear + teach me the entire finale from Dirty Dancing, but otherwise I’m obsessed with Kayla Itsines so it would be pretty cool to meet her!
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… September Song by JP Cooper — it brings me back to summer : ) Also anything Beyoncé [obviously!]
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… definitely helping to make other people’s day better, + I think that’s why med school is so attractive to me. I feel most fulfilled when I feel like I am making a difference! But what really makes me happy is meeting other people who are passionate about what they do + learning from my peers + through new people ++ experiences. I prefer to learn by *doing* ++ HATE to live my life passively!
I am #inCHAARG because… I try to push myself out of my comfort zone everyday. I am not super outgoing, I am not in the best shape of my life, I don’t have it all together sometimes. But, I have stopped letting these things stop me from taking what I want + being who I am — If I had let these things define me, I would not be an Ambassador for CHAARG today!
// LIVE //
3 words to describe you are… Personable, Passionate, + Independent!
Fun Fact: My friends nicknamed me Zoprah [Zoe + Oprah] freshman year after becoming the crew’s source of relationship advice hahaha!
