I became interested in the Documenting Obesity class because I am concerned with the intersection of policy and obesity.
Sierra is 10 years old and started at the Duke Healthy Lifestyles clinic over a year ago. She is completing her third season with Girls on the Run, and she also attends Bull City Fit workouts with her mom and sister.
I enjoyed learning more about photography and audio recording this semester, and how to tell Sierra’s story after such a short time of getting to know her. Sierra and her family were extremely warm and open. I really appreciate all the time they put into making themselves available these past few weeks on top of their already busy schedules. I am grateful I had the chance to get to know them.
