“I served as Ambassador at DePaul for two quarters + then the kind of end of that came ++ I wanted to still be on team CHAARG + I wanted to give more”…“I applied, had another interview + got the CLC position! + now I’m here + it’s been such a rollercoaster of a journey, but I would not have it any other way.”
— Anais Dominguez, #DePaulCHAARG
“My CHAARG journey has been something that has given me so many friends — so many lifelong friends.”… “It has been everything to me in my college career + has just been the cherry on top of a very excellent time at Iowa.”
— Carly Garcia, #IowaCHAARG
“The more + more I do for Salisbury University, the more that I know it’s because of CHAARG. I’m bettering myself, who I’m going to be, + the people around me because of CHAARG + what it has given me.”
— Molly Fitzpatrick, #SalisburyCHAARG
“CHAARG has taught me all of these wonderful things that my body can do, + through that, it has made me realize that my body is functional. Something that I like to say is — the function of your body is to function, not to appear.
The first time I truly had to let go of that was when I applied to become a CHAARG Ambassador…. flash forward to four years later + I’m surrounded by CHAARG girls every day.”
— Katie Carbonell, #VandyCHAARG
“CHAARG has helped me learn to completely trust the process in terms of where I’m supposed to be + where I’m going. I’m definitely someone who likes to have one hand on the steering wheel knowing what the outcome will be + what’s going to happen.
Without CHAARG, I never would have tried all of these workouts that I love now, I never would have found my gym in Nashville — I just love waking up every day + feeling so strong + so powerful.”
— Emily Ganz, #PurdueCHAARG
“Before CHAARG, I was an athlete for my whole life + as a collegiate athlete, I never really took the time to focus on anything besides my numbers in the weight room, mile time, weight on the scale ++ once I joined CHAARG, I not only realized that I take ownership of my body — what I put in it, how I work out — ++ that I actually have that choice, but also that CHAARG girls cared about me more.”
— Jill Jernas, #UCFCHAARG
“So, I go to my first event + I am so welcomed, + everyone just wanted to get to know me. I was so happy + never felt so accepted. It’s just the best feeling — not having to care what I look like or what other people think of me. Because I know that they are going to accept me for who I am, completely.”
— Alyssa Kleine-Kracht, #UCCHAARG
“My CHAARG Journey began at Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. It was the first club I joined on campus + I was really nervous going into it because I was from a small town in Wisconsin that was 8 hours away + I really missed having a team aspect from all of the sports I played in high school. Joining CHAARG there really gave that back to me.”
— Cassidy Mattson, #UWECCHAARG
“CHAARG has changed me in so many ways. I struggled a lot in middle school with body image + just having self-confidence. It’s been such a struggle my whole life. I finally have this platform. I know I have the ability to reach out to girls who might be struggling with similar things that I struggled + sometimes do still struggle with.”
— Jess Danylchuk, #BostonCHAARG
