Students of Valley High School in Santa Ana will be visited by a special, celebrity guest on Monday as YouTube Superstar Eva Gutowski of MyLifeAsEva (5.5 m+ Subscribers), drops in to spread her message of resilience and well-being and share her journey from hardship to happiness.

 

Eva is partnering with Dr. Oz’s non-profit HealthCorps to promote mental strength, nutrition and physical activity to students participating in special lunchroom and classroom activities such as teaching the students how to make green smoothies, read food labels and how to practice everyday fitness.

 

“We love all that Eva tells young people that, like her, they have the power to make their own life happen.” said Michelle Bouchard, President of HealthCorps. “When she talks, teenagers listen and her commitment to mental and physical well-being closely aligns with what we teach students across the country.”

 

“I am truly passionate about maintaining a healthy lifestyle both mentally and physically and am excited to be partnering with Dr. Oz and HealthCorps who are striving to put forth this message,” says Gutowski. “I can’t wait to share my journey and tips I’ve learned along the way with the students at Valley High School.”

 

HealthCorps has been working with Valley High since the Fall 2012 and offers nutrition based curriculum and programs that include a Parent Health and Fitness Club, Girls Group, and Staff Pedometer Competition. 99% of Valley High’s 2,283 students are minority and 86% of the student body is eligible for free or reduced lunch.

 

Interviews and photo opportunities with Eva, HealthCorps President Michelle Bouchard and HealthCorps Coordinator Vanessa Vazquez will be made available on site. Press is asked to arrive at 11:45am.
