First year wellness coordinator
Hi everyone! My name is Abigail and I’m running for the position of the 1st year wellness coordinator! Like you, doing well in school is a top priority for me. But, the concern I have with this mentality is that it can often lead into habits that eventually turn school into becoming your everything, something that I experienced during my previous undergraduate degree. While there were countless senior students and faculty telling me to ensure I took care of my physical, emotional, and mental health, I ended up ignoring their advice as it was often mentioned early in the semester when I wasn’t yet consumed with school. I eventually got to a point where not only was my overall wellness being negatively affected, but my grades weren’t improving either. It was during that time that I realized how important it was for students to have a support system that consistently encouraged and reminded them that they deserve to take care of themselves. My goal as the first year wellness coordinator would be to allow you to feel comfortable enough to view me as a personal source of support/help for you in regards to any concerns you may have about your overall wellbeing, and to also help facilitate the development of a larger support system among us all by planning and promoting events with the senior wellness coordinator that allow us to encourage overall wellness among one another.
