The Well-being Outreach Team empowers 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 team members & 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.

Junior in Secondary Math Education from Omaha, NE

This is my first year of being a Well-Being Ambassador and I am so excited for the rest of the year! I like to spend some of my free time singing karaoke with my friends and cooking new recipes.

I became a Well-being Ambassador because my roommate, Megan Joyce, was one last year and it seemed like the most inclusive and supportive group, so I applied right away.  

Well-being is important because a lot of people neglect their own well health and the 9 dimensions of well-being, and don’t know how big of an impact focusing some of your energy on yourself can make your outlook on life.

My favorite self-care regimen is cleaning my room, making some hot tea, and watching one of my favorite shows such as New Girl!

I am a first-year graduate student getting my Master's in Geology.

 I completed my undergrad at UNL being a double major in Geology and Chemistry, and a math minor. A fun fact about me is I am from Costa Rica, and I was a student-athlete during my undergraduate career here at UNL.

Junior in Integrated Sciences from Rwanda

I am from Rwanda and I belong to a family of nine people. Two parents and 6 siblings. I am passionate about impacting the lives of people around me. In the future I am open to any career that involves working with people especially vulnerable communities to make their lives better.

I have become a Well-being Ambassador because it is a perfect opportunity for me to start impacting the lives of others. It allows me to share tips of well-being which brings me a sense of fulfillment because it is something I love. Being a Well-being Ambassador teaches me different ways to improve other people's well-being, simply using the resources at hand. It teaches me that the world does not need a lot of resources to bring change into people's lives but simply a heart that is willing to help.

Well-being is important because it allows us to live to our full potential. It is when one is in good health that their talents are fully and efficiently harnessed. Well-being brings joy and happiness into people's lives and there is no better place like a place around happy people. 

My favorite self-care regimen is eating healthy food (lots of vegetables and drinking enough water), getting enough sleep, hanging around people and finally setting daily goals and making sure I achieve them all.
