Meet the Ambassador

Lia Giffels

My name is Lia Giffels + I am the University of Akron CHAARG Ambassador! I am SO excited to be leading our CHAARG Chapter this year. I am a Senior in Exercise Science, + my dream job is to be a Physical Therapist for the Cleveland Cavaliers or Indians. I came into Akron as a commuter student, so it was difficult for me to form close friendships. I heard about CHAARG + decided to join because it stands for everything I believe in, + it sounded like a great way to meet new friends. Thank goodness I joined, because I have met some of my best friends in CHAARG + am forever grateful to be part of this amazing community! CHAARG creates an opportunity for girls to become their best selves in every aspect — social, mental, physical — you name it, we got it! We are all about making girls comfortable in their own skin. If you enjoy trying new things, making new friends, + finding ways to enjoy working out, look no further — you’ve just found your perfect fit!

Why should someone join CHAARG?

You’ll never beat the laughs + memories you make with these girls! They always make working out enjoyable [even if some days a workout doesn’t even happen because you can’t stop talking]! Your Small Group is your family away from home that always is there to support you + cheer you on. // Morgan [Morganhan_inchaarg]
