I have always wanted to make a difference. Throughout elementary school, I strived to give back to the community in any and all ways that I could. Looking at health statistics and what was right in front of me, I knew something needed to be done about the obesity epidemic. At 15, I decided to start my own non-profit organization to better the community. Coming from a family where weight has always been a struggle, I understand the challenge to try and eat healthy. But here's the thing; it can be done, and it can be done with ease. With a passion for healthy eating and sheer determination, Health Takes the Lead was born.
