- About: I am 27 years old with a passion for overseas travel, teaching and development. I am currently in AmeriCorps and serving at a refugee resettlement agency. My hope is to one day permanently move overseas and help Syrian/Iraqi refugees in The Middle East. I spent some time in Uganda where i found a new found love of hiking! I am VERY slow at it BUT! I also enjoy running...when I'm not being lazy or forget.
- Why I've Joined Reboot with Joe: I grew up with parents who worked full time and so I've lived on fast food my whole life. I've always been a bigger kid since I can remember. Three years ago I had an uncle on my mom's side die of Leukemia at the age of 29. My grandmother on my dad's side died of Breast Cancer when I was about 4 or 5 and now my sister has tested positive for the BRAC gene. She will be going in for a preventative double mastectomy later this year after she loses enough weight. Some part of this is for her, I want to teach her what I learn from this experience and help her think about her health more seriously. The big push is knowing that it could be me next unless I take care of myself. I've never not been heavy in my lifetime. I dont know what a "healthy" version of me looks like and that terrifies me BUT! I am happy to see what she looks like after the next month or so.
