Peer Health Educator

Hello! My name is Harjot (har-joe-t) and I use he/him pronouns. I am an undergraduate here at UW studying History with a minor in Labor Studies! I plan on getting my Masters in education and becoming a high-school teacher with a focus on history from a non-white perspective, all the while adding more diversity to our teaching force. In my free time I love to go mountain biking, grab coffee at a local café, or drive around listening to music. One of the reasons I became a Peer Health Educator is to help you become resilient, through evidence based knowledge and effective skills (alongside a *spice* of empowerment). I know that in Asian and brown communities, our mental health is often ignored and looked down upon as a topic of discussion, but I want to make sure that we know the warning signs of a depleting mental health, and what we can do to change that, as well as the resources available across campus, designed specifically for us. It’s important that we take care of all aspects of our health, as our mental and physical well being are so closely connected. “you have two lives, the second one starts when you realize you only have one” ~ Anonymous
