Peer Health Educator

Hi! My name is Chloe and I use she/her pronouns. I am going into my second year here at UW, and am planning to study Public Health-Global Health. Outside of academic life, I love writing, being outdoors, and painting! As a pre-med student, I am extremely fascinated by how our brains and bodies work on a physical level, but I also love learning about how we as people interact with each other and the world around us. I try my best to be as conscientious and intentional as I can in the way I treat myself and others. Whether it be investing time working on my relationships, or evaluating how I can cope with stress more productively, I think that self-reflection is crucial for growth. This is one of the reasons why I was drawn towards becoming a Peer Health Educator. As much as I am looking forward to helping educate others, I am very excited to educate myself along the way, and to apply the ideas in my daily life.

I sincerely value compassion, and I think it is an extremely important mindset to carry throughout both our interactions with others and ourselves. It can be extremely difficult to be kind to our brains and our bodies, but it is essential to our overall well-being. Many of us only seek out help when we feel physically unwell, and do not realize how essential it is to also care for our mental and emotional health. I cannot understate the value of making resources and knowledge surrounding mental health, healthy relationships, and self-care more accessible. I am sincerely looking forward to raising awareness for some of the resources that students and others can utilize here!
