Meet Ruth!

I’m Ruth! The reason I’m a TAP Teen is because I love that I’m able to help people my age, but overall learn about my sexual health. My favorite part about being a TAP Teen is that I’m able to do things that I never thought were possible — like going out in my community and doing outreach. 🙌 One fun fact about myself is that I love to dye my hair very unique colors. 🎨

Can't wait to meet you in person at our next Teen Clinic! Come stop by for services and fun.
