Meet the members of the 2013-14 Health and Wellness Crew (HAWC)!
Whattup, Redhawks? While my legal name is
Katarina Juarez, I tend to go by KJ. I'm a senior Psychology major from Los
Alamos, New Mexico (home of the atomic bomb). This is my third year as a member
of HAWC, so I guess I sort of like being a peer health educator. Aside from
school, I enjoy working with children, watching terrible movies, listening to
KidsBop, tweeting, drinking iced coffee, hiking, taking photographs, and being
generally overwhelming. My personal goals are to watch every Disney Channel
Original Movie, attend The Gathering of the Juggalos 2015, and meet Guy Fieri.
In the upcoming year, I hope to spread awareness about sexual assault and
sexual health in order to engage and educate students in both their own
personal health and the health of their peers. To me, a proper understanding of
Health and Wellness means balance among the different facets of well being.
When we are in tune with ourselves physically and emotionally, we are able to
maintain a solid foundation for ourselves and be the best humans that we can
Hello SU friends! My name is Kara Ortbal and I am a Humanities for Teaching major from Bellevue, WA. I enjoy volunteering, spending time with friends, and eating. This will be my second year on HAWC and I hope to help spread awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault in our communities and how the SU community can support those impacted by sexual assault. For me, health and wellness means balance and well-being of one's mental, physical, and spiritual selves. Happy health!
Hey, there! My name is Kelsea Shannon and I hail from San Luis Obispo, CA! I am a political science major and am hoping to get a minor is Arabic! In my free time I can be found riding horses on SU's equestrian team, cooking, reading, laughing, drinking coffee, and teaching myself French. As a second year member of HAWC, I was to focus on promoting positive mental and physical health. I want to engage students and educate them so they can lead better lives. Health and wellness, to me, is the epitome of wellbeing. It is a balance that brings each part of life to light.
Hi! My name is Sherilynn Soo and this is my first year a
part of HAWC. I am a sophomore General Science major here at SU, hoping to
pursue a career in the medical field! I grew up in Beaverton, Oregon, but I
love the city of Seattle and have had an amazing time experiencing life up
here. Besides HAWC, I spend my time volunteering, hanging with friends, hiking,
reading, Netflix'ing and indulging in good food. This year, I'm excited to
become a Peer Health Mentor and hope to impact the SU community in this way!
Also, I hope to learn how to improve many aspects of my personal wellbeing.
Hey! My name is Alana Fernandez and this is my third
year on HAWC. I am a senior nursing major from Maui, HI. Some of my favorite
things to do are playing tennis and soccer, watching movies, reading, hiking,
and spending time with friends and family. I also love to eat and so I have
enjoyed exploring the different restaurants and types of food here in Seattle.
I joined HAWC because I was really interested in how health is a combination of
many different types of wellness, not just working out or eating healthy. I
have enjoyed learning, and helping others learn, about keeping healthy
physically, spiritually, mentally, and intellectually and I hope to continue
that this year!
