As a strong advocate for teen health/fitness/wellness, she has already channeled her passion into a variety of different avenues. She is part of a Community Health Education Team that travels to various counties’ fairs to speak to the public about the value of a healthy lifestyle. She has published 75+ primarily health/wellness/science articles for her column in a local newspaper, The Turlock Journal; in another local newspaper, The Modesto Bee; in letters to the editors of various publications; in the online version of Teen Ink Magazine, for which she won two Editor’s Choice Awards; in Contentment Health Magazine; in the Huffington Post; on Yahoo! Voices; and in SparkLife. She also won the UC Davis COSMOS Tina Rose Noto Award for her commitment to pediatric healthcare. Henna now has a “Health with Henna” segment on Express Yourself! Teen Radio, the #1 most listened-to program on the VoiceAmerica Kids Network. In her free time, she is a dedicated bicyclist, a yoga-lover, and a Zumba enthusiast.

All in all, she works to inspire young people to lead active, healthy lives, and tries to open up a meaningful conversation about the issues that often preclude them from achieving that today. The cardinal goal is to help individuals find empowerment through living and loving the healthy life. However, what differentiates her from other health/fitness/wellness advocates is that she approach the topic of health from a fun and exciting standpoint, as opposed to the drab and humdrum way it is so often portrayed.
