About

Who helped? Who am I? Why did I choose the topic healthy living/eating? It will all be explained here on the About page.

Who am I? It's me!
My name is Joel Edwards and I am a Year 13 student at Heretaunga College in Upper Hutt. I enjoy web design, baking (especially bread!) and playing badminton.

Why choose healthy living/eating?
Easy, it's a VERY important part of our lives. If we ignore it now we can end up living shorter and less healthy lives, and who wants that!? If we all make some simple choices to eat the right foods and do a little exercise each day, we will all be better off.

Who helped?
Here's the list of all the people who have helped me along the road of making this website. It wasn't easy but these people pushed me, encouraged me and generally helped me to get it done. THANKS TO EVERYONE OF YOU!

  • Mrs Lassey - Without your encouragement and motivation I don't think I could have done it. Thanks for all those positive and encouraging comments
  • Ethan Avison (my "ideas manager") - What can I say... other than... thanks for all the ideas
