// THE MOMENT //
The moment you knew you wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at your university… A lovely friend [Blogi, Natalie Topalian] introduced me to CHAARG! The MOMENT I looked at the website, I reached out to Elisabeth + Sarah to see how I could get more involved. After becoming a virt member, I knew I wanted a tangible group of ladies to surround myself with who support one another + bring about the best in each other.
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when… I was recovering from a serious back injury. I realized that being capable of living an active + healthy life was a precious gift that is not guaranteed in life and can be taken away at any given moment.
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… Veggie Stir Fry// Black Bean Burgers
Favorite Indulgence… Ice Cream!
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? I’d play tennis with Serena Williams.
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Emergency by Icona Pop—I can’t help but move my feet to the funky beat.
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Helping others embrace their uniqueness and finding unconventional beauty in the world.
I am #inCHAARG because… I want to be a part of something bigger than just me. I want to spread the joy + happiness in living a healthy life to every girl around me. In today’s society, it’s rare to find a woman who is confident and comfortable in her skin but I believe through CHAARG, I can help change that!
