Hi, my name is McKenzie Fitz, I’m an Asian American senior at ARHS and I am collaborating with fellow high school students Monica Cage, Petua Mukimba, Phoenix Ferreira Ford, Addison Lepak, Fatma Abdel-Maksoud, Courtnegail Rose,Tulsi Patel and Talvin Dhingra. We are creating a 10 -15 minute video capturing and amplifying the voices of the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. We welcome any student who identifies as Asian to join us in this project and who would be willing to speak about their own personal experiences of racism within this community. Anyone who would like to be involved by being interviewed or being a possible video editor, please reach out to us before April break. Please reach out to McKenzie Fitz at firstname.lastname@example.org, Monica Cage at email@example.com, or Addison Lepak at firstname.lastname@example.org. Its Wellness Wednesday! Today’s Wellness Wednesday tip is pretty simple:
DRINK. MORE. WATER.
Our body lives off H2O and staying hydrated is a great way to stay healthy!
The rough estimate on how much water a person should drink in a given day is ½ an ounce to a 1 ounce per pound one weighs. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink approximately 75 to 150 ounces of water a day. Staying hydrated not only improves and re-hydrates your body but also flushes out toxins, improves metabolism, increases brain power, and boosts your immune system. So WATER you waiting for? Grab a glass of H20 and hydrate!
