At the 2013 Fargo event, we had the opportunity to meet women behind inspiring stories of health: mental, physical and emotional. Meet Christine.Energetic, Colorful & Creative Healthy Role Model Christine
Christine Hoper is Energetic, Colorful and Creative… and I’m not just talking about her wardrobe choice! Athletic from head to toe, as you might guess, Christine is a runner! She’s a lot of other things too, but we’ll get to those in a minute. An outfit this bold needs to be called out right away!
A two-time thyroid cancer survivor, Christine enjoys every day and does everything she can to surround herself and seek out people in her life that challenge her to be a better person. She has a new appreciation that not making choices - is very much a choice. Because of her battle cancer not once, but twice, she’s more aware of choosing to spend time doing what she loves in life. Health is a choice, as well as a gift and first and foremost, your own responsibility to look after.
Christine is a Marketing Project Manager at Sanford… but she is also a writer and poet, having recently published a book of poetry titled, “Weiner Dogs and Other Muses,” (available here http://dkgallery14.tumblr.com/poetry). As the title suggests, Christine’s poems often invoke the quirky and overlooked aspects of our everyday lives, using brevity and humor to hoist them into minor splendor.
