// THE MOMENT //
The moment you knew you wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at your university… when I realized my university didn’t have a chapter + my best friend from high school was *obsessed* + totally inspired by the chapter at her school! To me, what CHAARG stood for was exactly what college-aged girls should strive for — being the healthiest + best version of themselves. Having a group of girls who truly want the best for you is priceless.
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when… I was in highschool in central Illinois + was totally bored with basically everything in the midwest. Making myself the best version of myself both physically + mentally seemed like the best distraction from the miles ++ miles of cornfields.
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… Greek Salad — or really anything Mediterranean ; )
Favorite Indulgence… Coconut Cream Pie <3
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? Chalene Johnson!! I’m obsessed with her personality + lifestyle ++ listen to her podcasts on my long runs! But it would def be SO RAD if she ran with me instead of just listening her through my headphones ; )
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Nothing is Impossible — The Planetshakers
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Making other people happy + teaching them to love [both themselves + other people]. We are all our own worst critics + need each other to become the people we were destined to be. Spreading love + good vibes is something *anyone* can do every day — from forgiving someone to simply sharing a friendly smile.
I am #inCHAARG because… CHAARG means more than just being healthy. It means being the best version of yourself + finding friends who are like minded + want to join in on the journey. The most impostant friendships are the ones we make during our college years + they are the people who will determine who we are. To me, CHAARG is the perfect way to build these lifelong friendships <3
// LIVE //
3 words to describe you are… free spirited, loving, + determined
Fun Fact… I couldn’t finish running a mile my freshman year of highschool.
Favorite life quote…
