Hi y’all! My name is Paula Reyna Small, and I’m a 19-year-old rising junior at Stanford University. I’m excited to have declared Human Biology this year, and will be using my junior and senior year to pursue a focus in Community-Based Nutritional Health & Sustainability. I’ve always been interested in nutrition as it relates to personal well-being, the environment, and building relationships between family and friends, so being an intern at Healthy Savannah has provided the perfect outlet for me to explore and observe what that can mean on the larger, societal scale. Not to mention it’s located in my hometown, which means I have the opportunity to help make and see positive changes happen in the place I call home. More specifically, I’ll focusing my efforts on the Childhood Obesity Prevention Program (COPP), and am really excited to be working for and with Healthy Savannah and the community. Here’s to a great summer!
Last May Cierra graduated from Savannah Arts Academy as a Communication Arts Major, and plans on enrolling at Armstrong State University this Fall. She is excited to begin this next chapter of her life.
