Vice President of Sexual Health Branch – Liz Jacob | email@example.com
Hi all! My name is Liz Jacob and I am a sophomore from Cleveland, Ohio majoring in Environmental Science and Policy and Marketing. I joined HOPE as a freshman because I saw a need on campus to advance healthy lifestyles and promote positive wellbeing. I’ve truly found my time in HOPE to be a transformative experience, and I look forward to the future endeavors of the organization! Beyond HOPE, I am the founder and president of SchoolHouse Block, co-organizer of Earth Week 2015, an intern at the Muscarelle Museum of Art, a member of Kappa Alpha Theta and a connoisseur of Aroma’s chai tea. This semester, the sexual health branch is returning to the basics of sex with presentations centered on pleasure, contraceptives, STI’s, and anatomy to encourage students to develop their own individual sexual ethic. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you are interested in learning more about the sexual health branch, would like to collaborate on a presentation, or just want to learn more about the intersections between sexuality and health!

Vice President of Mental Health Branch – Thomas Le | email@example.com
Hello! My name is Thomas Le, and I am a sophomore at W&M studying Psychology and English. I joined HOPE as a freshman because of my interest in mental health and my dream to one day work as a clinical psychologist, and since then I have learned to appreciate even more how our organization discusses such a wide range of pertinent topics: sex, healthy relationships, substance abuse, mental health, and how they all connect. Outside of HOPE, I work at the Writing Resources Center and the Charles Center, I conduct Psychology research in Professor Forestell’s Eating Behavior lab, and I serve as Vice-President of Short Story Club. While I specialize in body image/eating disorders and abnormal/social psychology, I look forward to guiding the Mental Health branch this year in a variety of topics, ranging from positive psychology to fitness and nutrition.
