Charlotte Youth Staff
Hello, my name is Andrea and I’m a junior at Mallard Creek High School. I have always been interested in improving my overall health and the health of people around me. I love working with YES! because I have the opportunity to be a leader and help others. I enjoy listening to music and watching movies. I’m a very open-minded person and I love to learn about various topics such as history and economics. I look forward to graduating from high school and continuing my education at a university to study business.
Hi! My name is Tully and I am a junior in the International Baccalaureate program at Myers Park High School. My interest in youth empowerment and the obesity epidemic was sparked by my older sister’s work with YES! and several great books and films. In my free time, I can be found with my nose in a book, listening to music, going on adventures with my friends, or blogging about my favorite boy band. I hope to major in history in college and travel as much as possible. I love making positive community change at YES! and look forward to doing so in the coming years.
Hello, my name is James and I am a sophomore at West Mecklenburg High School. I had the experience of working with a HealthCorps teacher at my school to teach students how to make healthier decisions about what they consume and how to live healthier lives on a daily basis. My teacher knew about YES! and suggested I apply. Through working with YES!, I plan to continue learning about living a healthy life as well as helping people in my community access the tools and information they need to make healthy decisions.
Hi, my name is Keyondra and I am 16 years old. I am currently a junior at North Mecklenburg High School. I enjoy cheerleading and running track. In the future I plan on attending a four-year university to become a physical or sports therapist. Later, I plan to enroll in the National Guard or another part of the U.S. military. I found out about YES! through my school’s morning show. Working at YES! provides a good opportunity to strengthen my advocacy skills and become a community leader.
