One Word To Describe You:

Recovery from surgery in the most healthy way possible AND to meet more girls that were passionate about all things health + fitness

The CHAARG Tour!! I went to Columbus in Spring 2019 + it was so so lovely to meet so many gals!

#inCHAARG Instagram Crush:

@yijing_inchaarg def needs a shoutout for being my rock + encouraging me to be #inCHAARG always

Philosophy On Wellness:

Move every day…whether that’s a long walk or a heavy lift [+ everything in between], eat more veggies + be kind to yourself

Favorite Self-Care Practice:

Taking a night to myself to just lay, watch a movie, + reset

2019 Intention:

Move more in new ways — to try to workouts + accept myself + my strength

Ideal Morning Routine:

Waking up around 7 am + drinking a cup of coffee + working on work in the morning light

Book Every CHAARG Girl Should Read:

The Art of Racing In the Rain by Garth Stein [the movie is very good, too!]

Greatest Lesson On College:

Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there! Try a new style, talk to that cute person in your class, join a club [maybe CHAARG] you’d never thought about joining, etc. All of the best memories I’ve made have been from doing something I wouldn’t normally do

Advice To Your Freshman Self:

Hang in there.. .you’re going to be okay. And you’re going to grow a tumor + come out on top

Being #inCHAARG To Me Means:

Living every day in the best way possible to help curate my happiest + healthiest self

How have you been Changed By CHAARG?

CHAARG has changed me because it has given me the freedom to move in new ways, but also allowed me to always have a workout buddy. Our chapter is super active + I have made my best friends through CHAARG, honestly. What you get out of CHAARG is what you put into it — if you’re an active member + go to events, you’ll have way more fun than if you don’t. CHAARG gave me a safe space to be my healthiest self + to safely get back into shape after both surgeries
