Well-being Ambassadors

Well-being Ambassadors empower students to positively manage their well-being by teaching students about the science of happiness and gratitude, and how to manage worry, set-backs, and stressors. Well-being Ambassadors & BRRWB staff members lead interactive workshops to increase awareness, encourage safer behaviors, create informed decision-makers, and enhance the health and well-being of peers.

Students interested in volunteering as a Well-being Ambassador should contact Laura Shell.

I’m originally from Omaha, NE. I love being a part of this team! My favorite color is yellow and my favorite thing to do in my free time is jam out to songs with my roommates.

I became a Well-being Ambassador to get involved and be a part of such an important and inspiring community on campus. It’s a place where I can help lift others up while also being lifted up by others.

Well-being is important for when life throws its curveballs. Having an overall good well-being can help defer you from letting the stress of a single-event make everything spiral, and helps you focus on the bigger picture and remember the other well-being dimensions that are going well and balanced. 

My favorite self-care regimen is either going to the rec and playing basketball with some friends or chilling on the couch with some friends and watching a movie.

I became a Well-Being Ambassador because I am passionate about bettering the world, even if it's a small change.

My favorite self care routine is turning on some music and having a dance party with my best friends in our living room

I became a Well-Being Ambassador so assist undergraduate students in dealing with well-being issues such as stress and mental health. I have struggled with these in the past and wanted to provide students with the same resources and support that I received in order to overcome the difficult times that emerge in college.

My favorite self-care routine is making time to see and hang out with friends. I'm a very social person enjoy the supportive and close relationships as they help me destress.

Sophomore in Community Health and Wellness

I became a well-being ambassador because I struggled to adjust to college and I want to be able to reach out to other students that are struggling in the way that I wish someone would have reached out to me. I truly believe that people need to feel supported and loved in order to be their best selves.

My favorite self care routine is taking time to go outside and focus on my senses. I like to look at the colors of nature , smell the flowers, and feel the sun and the breeze!

I became a Well-being Ambassador because I wanted to show others how little changes can make big impacts. 

My favorite self-care routine is going for a long run and using that time to focus on the positive aspects of my life.

I became a Well-being Ambassador because I wanted to spread awareness and educate the student body, including myself on how to be healthy within all aspects of your personal well-being.
