She is the youngest certified integrative nutrition health coach in the U.S. She was just 12 years of age when she founded the Happy Organization. Obviously, she had a push which made her do so. The reason that led her to create the Happy Organization was her father’s illness. He was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes and the medication to treat it had severe side effects. Haile, alongside her mother, started researching about ways to cater to her father’s illness so they can avoid giving him medicines. By watching documentaries on nutrition and with her mother’s help, she started making vegan meals intending to implement a healthy lifestyle regime. Fortunately, this helped to improve her father’s health to a great extent. This was the point where Haile realized the importance of healthy eating.
Haile learned to cook and launched her own organization “Happy”. “Happy” stands for Healthy Active Positive Purposeful Youth. It aims to bring cheap and also free plant-based cooking skills to underserved societies.
