// THE MOMENT //
The moment I knew I wanted to become the next CHAARG Ambassador at my university… I had come across the quote, “You were born with the ability to change someone’s life.” When I read this, I immediately thought of CHAARG. This organization changes so many women’s lives every day. I believe my purpose in life is to change someone’s life, and I instantly knew that being a CHAARG ambassador was how I was going to change lives.
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when… During my sophomore year of high school. I completed an at-home cardio kickboxing program ++ felt on top of the world! I started exercising regularly and realized I didn’t want to live my life any other way.
// EAT //
Favorite Meal… Avocado toast with an over easy egg on top
Favorite Indulgence… Mac+cheese!!
// SWEAT //
If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? Jen Widerstrom! We’d do a Crossfit WOD and it would be epic.
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Dancing With the Devil by Krewella. [but honestly–any song by Krewella gets me PUMPED]
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… teaching + helping others. Everyone has potential to become greater versions of themselves–that’s why I love being in CHAARG. Seeing all of these women come together to help each other + grow is a truly beautiful experience.
I am #inCHAARG because… I am not perfect + I will never have the “perfect body” or perfect life. I want to help others realize that you do not have to be perfect in order to live a happy, healthy life.
