Our Team

Valeri Guevarra 

Founder of Teen Health 101

Valeri Guevarra is a 17-year-old junior at Indian Hills High School in NJ. Like other members of Gen-Z, she loves social media and the internet. Growing up with both, she witnessed the influence one voice or a collection of voices could have online, whether it has a positive and negative impact. Inspired by current events and her personal journey through health/fitness, Valeri founded Teen Health 101 to help teens lost in the masses of online health resources available, combat the spread of misinformation online, and amplify youth voices in healthcare.

 

Although she had an inherent interest in the healthcare industry with many family members pursuing nursing, she has cultivated her own independent passion for the field through Teen Health 101. Some of her favorite topics to cover are medical careers, reproductive rights, access to healthcare, mental health, and nutrition. Guevarra is also a writer, athlete, activist, and public speaker. 

 

Valeri hopes that teens utilize TH101’s resources to remain educated and informed about the health world around them. She also hopes that the organization inspires others to take initiative and create a solution to problems they see in the world and not be afraid to be a voice even in an adult-dominated field like healthcare. 

The TH101 team is comprised of volunteer students from the ages of 13-22 and divided into a content creator team and ambassadors.

 

The content creator staff includes individuals who produce content for our platforms (articles, social media, videos, etc.) and leaders who help run the organization's operations (website, marketing, press, finances, etc.).

 

Ambassadors mainly serve as audience representatives that assist in marketing, recruiting new staff, and generating new ideas.
