Hopewell Learning About Water

Hello Everyone. My name is Aliyana, and I am a Y Street member who attends Hopewell High School, Class of 2025. This is my first year on the Y Street Leadership Team.

My first big event, the Rev Your Bev Celebration, was a great first opportunity as a member. The Celebration was a fun and innovative way to promote water and bring in more support cards. We spoke to a lot of students about the importance of drinking water and their views on water access in schools. Everyone was very enthusiastic and enjoyed the campaign goodies we offered (cups, stickers, and bracelets) once they completed a message of support.

High school students sometimes struggle with making drinking water a habit and drink too many sugary drinks because they are easy to obtain. Making water more readily available will allow students to have easier access to water throughout the day. Our Rev Your Bev campaign focuses on raising awareness and collecting messages of support to encourage people to take a closer look at this issue.

This year I am looking forward to participating in more events and using our advisory time to promote healthy hydration, as well as giving out more swag to students. I am hoping that students will learn more about the health benefits of water. I believe the more youth speak out and educate others, the bigger the change we will make in our schools.

Go to RevYourBev.com to support the campaign by filling out a support card using my Member ID number: 19423.
