Hey! My name is Daniela and I am a sophomore at J.R. Tucker High School. I have been a part of Y Street for two years now. This year, as a returning member, participating in the training was straightforward and educational. The training consisted of four online modules. These modules included information about our campaigns, Rev Your Bev and Share The Air, explaining the benefits of drinking water and creating tobacco-free and vapor-free parklands, and how we can raise awareness.
Did you know that our brains are composed of 73% water, which means water is a real necessity! Fun facts like these are very educational. In reading through the material, watching videos, and completing short quizzes, I was able to easily absorb the information. As a returning Y Street member, I’m genuinely glad I went through the training. The training allowed me to fully comprehend the goals of our campaigns and learn more about exciting new opportunities to get involved.
Now that I’m officially a member again, I have enjoyed interacting with the program and advocating for increased water access in our schools and 100% tobacco-free outdoor spaces.
