Spotlight: UC Berkeley Ambassador, Emily!

Hello all! I didn’t want to admit it for the past week but there’s no denying the colder weather at this point. Fall is certainly here. Perk: Starbucks’ pumpkin spice lattes are back! AND with the start of a new school year, CYB has welcomed another campus ambassador to our campus program: Emily Jong!

Here’s a little self-intro from our UC Berkeley intern herself!

Currently a sophomore at UC Berkeley, I plan to graduate with a major in Public Health. I came across the CYB table at a career fair and was immediately attracted by the opportunity to educate and empower my friends and classmates. Through my work with CYB, I am eager to continue working in the Public Health field. Most recently, I interned at a non-profit in Oakland dedicated to promoting healthier lifestyles through the media. I currently volunteer at UC Berkeley’s student health center and am also a member of the Cal Undergraduate Public Health Coalition. With these established connections I’ve already hit the ground running to coordinate parties and events, as well as forge new, vibrant relationships with other organizations on campus. I’m so excited to work with Check Your Boobies. I can’t wait to start interacting with my peers and increase awareness and empowerment about breast health!

Welcome to CYB, Emily!! We are so excited to have you!

September Check Your Boobies Reminder


• Even though it’s Labor Day – don’t think that Checking Your Boobies is a chore. It’s as easy as peach pie! So Check Your Boobies and eat a slice of pie to celebrate the holiday.

• Labor Day commemorates the worker. So get to work and tell a friend how easy and important it is to Check Your Boobies!

• Labor Day is also viewed as the official end of summer. So take this chance to wear that hot bikini one more time. And before you slather on the last drop of your suntan lotion.
