Why recognize Action Heroes?
We are all influenced by our surroundings... and often too busy to go out of our way to eat healthy and be physically active. Healthy Shasta wants to recognize and celebrate those who make healthy eating and physical activity choices convenient, enjoyable, affordable, more enticing or easier for others.
Individual Youth: Carly Rosen
Carly Rosen positively impacts the community through volunteer work related to nutrition and physical activity. She is committed to improving access to healthy options for herself, her peers and the community. With a positive attitude and natural leadership skills, she is a role model for her peers. She encourages teens to take advantage of healthy options and maintain the healthy options standards at the Anderson Teen Center. She frequently volunteers for community events such as cooking classes, trash pick up days, Family Fun Fest, Lean-N-Green Day and Take Back the Night - teaching kids about nutrition and ensuring the community is clean and safe.
Why we like Carly:
Carly has maintained her commitment and involvement with the Teen Center and local volunteer efforts throughout her senior year (a time when many teens might taper off). Carly goes above and beyond to help youth in her community live a healthy lifestyle.
Tips from Carly:
- Always try to eat something new, especially if it's healthy for you.
- Always drink water!
- Listen to your mom when she suggests you join a certain group. In the end she is usually right.
