Hi, Everyone! My name is Abby, and I am a senior at Fauquier High School. I have been a part of the Y Street family for two years and this is my first year on the Y Street Leadership Team (YSLT). The scientific fact of water aiding digestion speaks personally to me. As someone who has struggled with an eating disorder in my past, a part of recovery is learning how to intuitively take care of my body. My digestive tract has a hard time processing foods as a result of my past condition, even though I have been in recovery for two years. Drinking water helps to ease things through my system. Not only does it help to regulate my digestive system, but it also helps with my acne that I have developed as a result of my disorder.
The Rev Your Bev campaign is important to me because of how much it has impacted my life. I especially love sharing the science behind why water makes me feel so fulfilled on so many levels. I would not be able to exercise regularly to reach my fitness goals if I did not fuel up on water!
I am looking forward to graduating and receiving a scholarship from Y Street for all the activism I have done. I am also very excited to see what May brings for YSLT as the school year comes to a close. Rev Your Bev has made me so knowledgeable about the importance of water and this knowledge will carry over into my next chapter in university!
