Facilitator Profile Susana Trujeque
Why is good nutrition important to you?
What inspires you as a THK facilitator?
One of my sayings in life is: "If you do not know something, you have to learn; but if you do know it, you have to share it." I gained the knowledge about what foods are good for my family to enjoy better health. I like to share with the community that love is not the only ingredient to cook with for their families, they need to know about the variety of food and the importance of nutrition for good health.
What positive health change have you made recently?
I have increased my physical activity by doing exercises such as jumping rope and running for 30 minutes per day as well as playing with my daughters around our home for 15 minutes every evening to improve our weight.
