Meet the Ambassador

Lena DeJaco

Hello!! My name is Lena + I am the current CHAARG Ambassador here at Pitt! I am a Senior Computer Engineer, but joining CHAARG my freshman year was the best decision I’ve made in college. Pitt CHAARG is a community of like-minded women passionate about our health journeys during college. Coming to a Pitt CHAARG event is like a super blast of positive + supportive love from our amazing community of members! Whether you are just starting to workout//have been working out for a while, we have members just like you who are excited to try new things + learn from each other. Some of our favorite events are Zumba, Yoga, ++ Barre! This CHAARG community has encouraged me to be bold at times when I’ve needed to make hard decisions + gave me the confidence to embrace all that life has to throw at me. Come be part of our community + see what CHAARG can do for you!

Here’s what #PITTCHAARG girls are saying…

Why did you join CHAARG?

To find a community that aligned with my values + promoted health and wellness in a sustainable manner! // Tori [tcancelfit]

Why should someone join CHAARG?

It’s the easiest way to make friends who have the same goals as you! Even if you’re new to fitness, there’s someone who also just joined! Or if you’ve been working out for a while, there are people like that in CHAARG too that will give you new workout ideas! I highly recommend joining! // Ava [Avas_inchaarg]

What is something you want to share about CHAARG?

CHAARG helped me to meet new people when I didn’t have many friends after transferring schools. I have met so many girls who I feel comfortable talking to + I absolutely love staying fit at the same time! // Nikki [nikkiray_inchaarg]
