Don’t Make an Excuse to not exercise!

find 5minutes after you wakeup to workout, at lunch, at dinner, 5 minutes a few times a day adds up!


Do not deprive yourself!

keep snacks available at all times and everywhere you go! When you crave something or get hungry, EAT! Almonds, trail mix, granola bars, fruit, and dried fruits are healthy alternatives! Be sure to eat every 4 hours!


when baking cookies, try swapping butter for canola oil because of its’ lower fat content. Also add nuts and swap bittersweet chocolate for semisweet chocolate. Brown-rice syrup is more slowly absorbed into your bloodstream, thus, decreases the rise in bloodsugar after consumption!



Pears fight off free radicals

eat pears to help fight off free radicals and keep your cholesterol levels in check! With only about 100calories, 6grams of fiber, and 215mg of potassium, a pear is a healthy, delicious, and refreshing treat!

Let you skin drink green tea! RECYCLE

recycle your used green tea bags! Place them into a glass jar after you use them, and then when you wash your face in the morning, use the tea bags as an exfoiliator and cleanser! With green teas’ anti-inflammatory properties and high dose of antioxidants, it is a great depuffer for your skin in the morning! Try it!

RUNNING for and age related disabilities

long-term regular running once a week for at least an hour can delay the onset of age-related disability and keep you active long into old age!


Gymnastics. I remember the love I felt for this unique sport when I first began. That was many years ago, and it has yet to be faded. Through gymnastics I have learned so many valuable lessons and experienced so much! I’ve learned dedication because if you are a gymnast you must be dedicated to the sport.  I am the team member that always went above and beyond expectations, I was always the one that constantly worked out at home, loved conditioning, and learned that fastest. I’ve learned determination because a gymnast must be determined to keep on going when the going gets tough. I’ve made many sacrifices such as missing prom, and social events, as practices are long and often. I’ve learned time management because I have often had little time to complete school assignments, work, and in practices complete workouts in due time with a valued work ethic. I have attained an astonishing athleticism that only a gymnast can achieve. But most of all, gymnastics is the coping skill I use to cope with the many obstacles and challenges that I’ve faced throughout my life. Gymnastics is the one thing I could always fall back on, rely, and depend on for support. Gymnastics is and always is the light at the end of a dark tunnel; it is my stress reliever. With my experience and love for gymnastics, I am now also an experienced gymnastics coach of all ages. Gymnastics has impacted my life so greatly, that I honestly can never picture my life again without seeing gymnastics as a part of it. I don’t know who I would be today, if it weren’t for gymnastics.

I find that my experiences through AP U.S. History to be most rewarding. I have learned how to better manage my time. With the extensive amount of information that is to be learned in such short amounts of time, I’ve also practiced effective studying habits, which I’d never before needed to utilize. I find that by pushing myself and excelling in the challenging AP U.S. History course in high school, I have better prepared myself for the demanding courses of college, rather than if I hadn’t. When I first began this class, I was not a fan, but now I love it! That truly proves a lot and is personally satisfying. The biggest reward will be when I pass the AP U.S. History College Board Exam in May.


I am currently a pageant queen and I hold the prestigious title “Miss Teen Delaware International 2012.” My responsibilities include promoting a platform that I feel strongly about. “Finding the Balance” emphasizes the importance of overall health through a balanced health triangle, prioritizing exercise and fitness, and healthy eating. This July, in Chicago, Illinois, I am honored enough to represent my state as an international ambassador as I compete with amazing teenagers from around the world for the most prestigious title “Miss Teen International 2012!”I love how I am a role-model to others while doing something I love. It isn’t all about the glitter and tiaras, though that’s a plus, it’s really about the services and changes that I can bring forth to my community. I have learned how to take what starts as an idea, turns into a dream, becomes a goal, and is achieved through my belief and will to put it into action. The significance of my contribution to the community will impact more than just myself, but to the many people in my community, state, and one day, around the world.
