Marlie is a 17 year old high-school senior from Boca Raton, Florida. She currently attends Saint Andrew’s School and is a part of the nutrition club there. She believes eating right and staying active is important because not only is it healthy, but also feels good. Teaching younger kids about the dangers of obesity can prepare them for the future. She also believes that everyone should be constantly active throughout their lives because it is so important. She believes that sometimes students need a break from studying or work and should be active to use that time to destress. Marlie plays lacrosse and really enjoys participating in this team sport. She believes that everyone should enjoy what they choose to do to be active, whether it be a sport, running on a treadmill, or swimming in a pool, because it not only helps the body, but also the mind.
