So today is the last day of work. I’ll miss this job and the people but, working with AMA has been amazing and a great experience. I learned many things that I will keep with me for a long time and I met many new people that were also amazing!

A few things I learned this summer we discussed and researched many topics. When we did Obesity/Body Image I learned the importance of being healthy and fit and the dangerous health risks you can get from being obese. We also had to make post cards for the topics we did. We learned how to use this thing called sumo paint it was kind of similar to photo shop and it was pretty cool. I think I could use this later on too like in school for different projects and stuff. I also learned all the effects of tobacco this made me want to stay away from smoking even more. I also learned about healthy relationships, how to have a healthy relationship not only with your boyfriend but also relationship with like friends and family. I also learned and researched about feminism, it was actually really interesting, Feminism is when women believe and fight for equal rights for women, and I learned how feminism really isn’t bad in a relationship as people say it is and that n some cases i† can make it even better if you aren’t too extreme about it.

After High School I do plan to go to college, I don’t know what I want to be yet but maybe like a nurse or a photographer. I want to be successful in whatever I do but at the same time have fun to. AMA also had people come in to give presentations and a lady came in  to talk about college. So I learned a lot from them too about college like what schools I can go to that major in what I want to be, the tuition rates. and  about financial aid, so I will use what I learned laater on when choosing a college and applying for financial aid, and etc.

Thank you AMA for making my summer job experience great!

This summer has been a great experience. I got a job at A.M.A. through step up.  The first week we did group activities so we could get to know each other, like people scavenger hunts, community maps, taking pictures.  After that the next week I think we started working on Obesity & Body Image, we did research and were told to make fact-sheets and postcards. While doing research I actually learned more about obesity and body image that I never knew about. I didn’t know of all the diseases you could get from Obesity and other stuff. Matter Of Fact I think I learned a lot of things from each of the topics. We also did brochures, postcards, and power points on different topics to such as Alcohol Prevention, HIV/STD,tobacco prevention,  Love, Beauty. I wasn’t here for alcohol Prevention but so I don’t know much about that but I learned, new ways you can protect yourself from HIV, expensive drugs you can take if you have HIV, and other stuff from Tobacco prevention and Love and Beauty. My favorite thing was the field trips the target field field trips were really fun. I was really looking forward to the canoe trip but didn’t get to go because it thunder stormed so we went to see a move but that was fun too. Overall I had a great summer with A.M.A. thank you !

These past few days we have been talking about HIV. 2 people have come in and gave us presentations about it. On thursday and friday girl named Mae came in and talked about HIV and AIDS. She was very outgoing and she made it engaging by making games out of it so we can move around instead of just sit and listen to her talk. She even brought contraceptives and a wooden model to show us how to put on a condom. On Friday after her presentation she gave us a bag with condoms and candy and a $10 gift card. Today a guy came in talked to us about aids and he was very funny and I learned a lot of interesting facts. After that him and this other lady was giving out HIV tests to everyone. They like pricked my finger and it wasn’t that bad, it was just like a little sting and it went by pretty fast. So thats what I’ve been doing at work these past days.

Happiness is when you’re healthy.

A true friend is someone who will stop you from making decisions you’ll regret.

Think twice before you light that.

My advice is don’t smoke especially not when your still young.

You’ve got to learn to not fall into peer pressure.

If you wish to be healthy don’t smoke.

Healthy is supposed to make you happy.

Every Cloud should stay in the sky none should come out your mouth.

Everything in life is easy if you make it easy.

Grandma thinks that kids should never smoke.

If things seem crazy quit smoking your probably just high.

The way to get rid of a problem is to get help.

I just don’t understand why kids think smoking is cool.

If you want to be a winner, you need to quit destroying yourself.

If you want good advice you should ask for it.

The great thing about getting old is you know you’ve lived a healthy life since you made it that far.

Life is like a big roller coaster it has its up’s and down but don’t go too high.

Life’s up and downs are normal don’t think a smoke will help it.

The best advice in life is think twice before you do something.

HEALTH is not something to play with, if you ruin it it won’t be easy to make better.

No matter where you go you will see smokers don’t be like them.

Ok, get this straight smoking isn’t good period no matter what it is your smoking.

The way to solve a problem is taking it one step at a time.

The one rule in life is if its not healthy don’t do it.

The secret of success is to live a healthy life.

Always remember don’t follow the crowd they can be taking you the wrong direction.

When opportunity knocks examine it and make sure its a good one.

When you miss somebody you should remember them by living the healthy life they didn’t have.

You know someone is your friend when they stop you from making the same mistake they did.

You can always win if you live above the influence, your winning your health.

If you need to fix something, you should put effort into it.

All you need in life is to be healthy.

If things get you down you should call a friend and talk about it.

The best way to stay out of trouble is to not be around trouble.

No matter what don’t forget living a healthy life is most important.

I went to my schools carnival and what I saw

I saw a girl in the bathroom at school

Puffy eyes and tears all down her face

I asked her whats wrong and she said to not tell

She said shes too fat and she doesn’t fit in

she said people will make fun of her if shes seen

She was not fat not even a little so I told her that

she looked shocked and looked at me like I was lying and she said

have you not seen the girls in the magazines?

I told her that the girls in the magazines are not perfect

a lot are photoshopped too she still didn’t believe me and just left.

It was sad that the media made people feel so insecure and sad.

Maybe one day people will realize that everybody’s different

and its not bad.

My first ads is like telling people about what being obese can do to you and what caused it. Its kind of sad cause there all just kids and like they might die before there kids and how the kid has the same type of diabetes as his dad and he got diabetes because of his weight.

My second ad I thought is motivational for people who are overweight or obese. Also I thought it was funny. It relates with the theme of obesity because its about losing weight and getting healthy.

One new fact I learned is that most of the obese kids live less then there parents and I just think that its really sad.

No matter where you go… walking is not so bad.

The best way to stay out of trouble not have trouble with you.

No matter what don’t forget you are wonderful the way you are.
