This past summer, I volunteered for a week at a summer camp for children with diabetes.The American Diabetes Association’s, Camp Carefree was geared toward bringing children with diabetes together and providing them with support from all over the country. The kids amazed me every single day with their knowledge and bravery. I knew nothing about how hard their daily lives were; I only knew what I had learned in classes at UNH.

During these past couple of months, campus has been full of prospective freshman touring the campus and attending orientation. Last weekend I was able to take part in an orientation for incoming freshman where myself and Jenna Channel, another Healthy UNH intern, talked to new students about what Healthy UNH is and what we do on campus.

Everyone has heard of the dreaded "Freshman 15," however for me, it was more like the freshman 20. Coming to UNH as a freshman and having an unlimited dining plan made it super easy for me to eat WAY to much in our dining halls. Don't get me wrong, there are PLENTY of healthy choices to be made while eating on campus, but I just couldn't get over the delicious desert bar or the french fries that seemed to be there every single day.
