SHA Member Spotlight

Each quarter, a few SHAs are honored with the SHA Member Spotlight.
These SHAs are recognized for their passionate commitment to the SHA Program, their dedication to the SHA mission, and their willingness to go above and beyond in the realm of peer health education.

"SHA is now 25 years strong at UCSD! I believe the SHA program has such a great impact on our campus by providing fellow students with the information they need to keep themselves healthy. The key words being “fellow” students! What’s so great about our program is that we are also students, and are an accessible resource for people to get information!"

"My favorite SHA memory had to be tabling for Triton Fest during Fall
quarter. ... During those tablings I always have fun because on many
occasions the students who participate ask really interesting questions and its also fun to hang out and get to know all the other new and old SHAs."



"SHA has been such an incredible experience for me, and I am glad I joined when I did. By far, one of my favorite memories has to be the incredible lasting friendships I have made. SHAs are some of the coolest, most unique and dedicated people you'll ever meet and to be a part of an organization with them has been the absolute best."

 

"My favorite SHA memory was the 25th anniversary social. Celebrating this milestone with everyone with photos, desserts, and merriment was a great community builder and milestone to accomplish."






"My favorite SHA memory is volunteering in Body Composition Analysis. As a General Health SHA, I enjoyed helping my fellow students learn abour their bodies, having conversations about health, and sharing the resources that we offer to achieve their goals."



"I joined SHA to educate students about the importance of taking care of their sexual health, and foster an environment where we are encouraged to learn about safer sex practices and openly discuss sexual health."

 


"I joined SHA because I wanted to be among a group of individuals who are passionate about promoting the health of their community. As a Sexual Health SHA, I have seen this in action by being part of a team who creates inclusive spaces for students to learn about the ways in which they can become empowered to express their sexuality in healthful ways."
