Health Carnival at AUK

The Do It Yourself Club at the American University of Kuwait (AUK) hosted a carnival and lecture series that focused on health and nutrition in March. The event was sponsored by Lina's & Dina's Diet Center and the Stretch Fitness Center. The Do It Yourself Club is a student organization that was founded to help promote better health practices among the members of the AUK community, primarily through enriching the student experience outside the classroom and helping them work on themselves in a healthy way.

The lecture series was held in the AUK auditorium on March 22nd, where a number of health experts offered lifestyle advice to students, staff and members of the public. Fatme Saade, a nutritional coach, gave tips on how to manage diets and discussed the growing problem in Kuwait with obesity and suggested ways to combat it. Zahra Buagbaas, a professional kick-boxing trainer, talked to the students about healthy weight loss methods and how to achieve personal fitness goals. The Do It Yourself Club also aired two motivational videos to inspire members of the AUK community towards a path to a healthy lifestyle.

There was an exhibition portion to the Health Carnival. It took place outside on the soccer field on AUK's campus and included a number of activities such as a live performance, healthy lunch options for visitors to purchase from, and booths set up by health companies. The live show featured TJ, a fitness trainer, showing the attendees how to train correctly and stretch properly, and Jannet Miranda, who performed zumba moves to get students excited about fitness. Twelve businesses participated in the carnival, who distributed samples of their healthy and offered lifestyle advice.

The Do It Yourself Club (DIY) is a student-led initiative that was formed to encourage members of the AUK community to invest their time and effort on their personal development outside the classroom through workshops, lectures and a variety of other activities that promote better lifestyle practices. The Club has planned a year of workshops, awareness campaigns, and activities that are in line with the theme of healthy living.
