The word "Innergy" is the concept that combines aspects of inner strength, beauty, confidence, and personal growth through mindfulness and positive thinking. It's a term that emphasizes the inner qualities and energies that contribute to personal development and well-being.
Innergy encapsulates a holistic approach to self-improvement.
It is by our body that we function. Your mind and body are connected, therefore it is IMPORTANT to take good care of both. Our quarterly magazine brings you health and wellness information from professionals in their field. You'll read inspiring stories from people of all ages and walks of life. Our magazine will help discover tools and techniques to unlock your body's full potential and experience.
Innergy Magazine is the evolution from Serenity Wellness Magazine founded in 2017.
In a world rich with diversity, we find strength and beauty in the myriad ways people choose to live their lives. Each person's journey is unique, colored by their culture, beliefs, experiences, and aspirations. Yet, amidst this tapestry of differences, there exists a unifying thread—an undeniable resonance that connects us all.
"Harmonizing Diverse Lifestyles into a Unified Voice" celebrates the mosaic of human existence, acknowledging the various paths we tread while recognizing the shared values that bind us. In these pages, we explore the stories of individuals from all walks of life—each voice contributing to a collective chorus that resounds with unity.
From bustling urban landscapes to serene rural retreats, from daring adventurers to introspective artists, we delve into the essence of these lifestyles, embracing the tapestry of backgrounds, traditions, and perspectives. While our paths may diverge, the heartbeat of our humanity remains constant—a reminder that we are part of a grand symphony, each note playing a vital role in creating a harmonious whole.
As we navigate these diverse stories, we invite you to lend your ear to the voices that might differ from your own, and to discover the common threads that bind us as human beings. Through these narratives, we hope to illuminate the shared desires for happiness, fulfillment, and connection that bridge the gaps between us.
In celebrating our differences while recognizing our shared dreams, we truly find the essence of what it means to be human. Let's come together as we explore the stories that make up the grand tapestry of life, allowing our differences to enrich us and our common humanity to unite us.
Welcome to a symphony of voices, a celebration of diverse lives, and a reminder that amidst the vast array of lifestyles, there beats a single heart that unites us all.
The definition of serenity means the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. We want to help get you, your loved ones, and our communities there. We recognize that wellness is as much about self love and self care as much as it's is about exercise and healthy eating. Every person’s individual goals for wellness are different, and that’s great. We also recognize that personal health is intimately connected to community health, and that better health outcomes often require systemic change. We’re all in this together to find our INNERGY!
Voices Heard-The Gen Z and Alpha Issue
In this issue we are focused on Gen Z and Alpha’s who are OUR FUTURE!
I am Dr. Kymberli Boynton, privileged to serve as both CEO and Publisher of Serenity Wellness and the new Innergy Magazine. Beyond the realms of this publication, I proudly wear the hat of a Therapist and Master Certified Life Coach, dedicating myself to working with two generations that are close to my heart.
In my roles, I bear witness to the daily struggles faced by my patients – young and old alike. These challenges strike at the very core of their well-being: from the torment of bullying to the complexities of gender identity issues, the burden of labeling, the weight of depression, and the significance of pronouns, just to name a few.
What resonates most deeply with me is the sincere effort my patients make to communicate their experiences and emotions to the world around them. They long to be heard and understood, to share their stories and find validation. Unfortunately, they often find themselves facing a disheartening reality – a lack of genuine listening, a sense of dismissal, or worse, being ignored.
But I stand here today to affirm that their voices matter, their stories are important, and their struggles are not in vain. Through this magazine and beyond, I vow to provide a platform for their narratives, to shed light on these vital issues, and to foster a community of empathy and support.
Let us work together to break down the barriers of silence and misunderstanding, to promote understanding and acceptance, and to forge a path toward greater compassion and mental well-being. THEY WANT TO BE HEARD, and we want that too!

Boo2Bullying (B2B) is a youth development and suicide prevention organization. We provide mentoring opportunities, educational resources and mental health support to youth and families adversely affected by bullying. Our primary mission is to empower students (grades K-12) with tools to use their voices for self-advocacy and to be proactive in creating safe communities that combat bullying, discrimination and intolerance. A high percentage of whom are LGBTQ+ youth.
Pre-COVID, in 2018 and 2019, we served 25,000 local students. During the pandemic while schools were closed, B2B expanded its social media outreach. Beginning March 2020, we pivoted to "virtual" school programs and greatly expanded our social media messaging focused on positivity and mental health. In 2021, Boo2Bullying created a new video resource and classroom curriculum for K-3 children called C.A.P.E. Nation. Students become "Super Heroes" by learning Courage, Appreciation, Personal Health habits, and Education life lessons; they are taught and empowered to love themselves, accept others who are different, spread kindness and stand up against bullying and discrimination.
Boo2Bullying continues to connect with over 30,000 young people in-person and many more online.

Twelve-year-old Clovis Hung breaks a record at Fullerton College to become the youngest graduate to earn five degrees. After completing his 2023 spring semester, he earned five Associate of Arts degrees in History, Social Sciences, Social Behavior and Self-Development, Arts and Human Expression, and Science and Mathematics. Clovis joined more than 900 graduates at the 108th Commencement on May 20 at 9 a.m. on Sherbeck Field.
Clovis was just nine years old when he enrolled at Fullerton College after being inspired by another young Hornet graduate in 2020, Jack Rico, who was just 13 years old at the time and earned four degrees. Clovis shared he wanted to do the same thing and will now surpass Jack Rico’s record.
“I feel proud of myself. Hard work has finally paid off,” Clovis said.
His mother, Song Choi, says that Clovis has always been highly self-motivated and goal oriented, and it’s one of the reasons she pulled him out of traditional public school in 2019 so that she could home school him. Under the “special admit” program at Fullerton College, Clovis was able to enroll in college classes while simultaneously completing a homeschooling curriculum.
“Clovis is super inquisitive, mature, diligent, self-disciplined, and highly motivated. He is also very curious and traditional public schools could not satisfy his curiosity, therefore, the best option was college,” said Choi.
Clovis enrolled in his first course, World Civilizations to 1550, in the fall of 2020 and continued to enroll in more classes each semester, at one point taking 11 units, the maxim allowed units for “special admit” students. He further challenged himself with honors courses, excelling in each of them and impressing many of his professors and peers who said Clovis displayed a great level of brilliance,
“At first, I was a little worried about how he would relate to the other students given the age and developmental differences, however, those concerns were unfounded. Clovis has been a great mixture of ‘kid’ and college student. He is mature enough that the other students take him seriously, but enough of a kid that they look after him like a younger brother and cheer him on,” said Biology Professor Kenneth Collins.
Clovis admits he was a little nervous the first few times he stepped into a new classroom at the beginning of each semester. “The first question the professors and classmates usually ask is how old I am. They are surprised at what I am doing here and always curious about the points of my quizzes and exams. However, after a while, I have shown a serious attitude toward my study; they all believe in my ability and determination to get good grades,” he said.
Clovis is a standout among his peers, but not for his age or size. “Clovis is such a joy to be around and very intelligent. Although he is tiny, it’s the only feature that gives away his age,” said Student Trustee Paloma Foster who is taking Honors Anthropology with Clovis this semester.
Clovis was elected as a Senator for Associated Students for the upcoming academic year and plans to continue taking STEM classes at Fullerton College until he’s ready to apply to universities in the fall. He said he’s exploring several career paths including commercial piloting, medicine to become a pediatrician, and is interested in aerospace careers.
At home, he’s just a regular tween boy, playing basketball with his friends, setting up Star Wars scenes with Legos, playing with his dog Chep Chep and his cat Cotton, and earning merit badges to become an Eagle Scout.
“I feel really proud of what I’ve accomplished so far,” he said. “I also just joined the Civic Air Patrol and hope to get my pilot license at age 16.”
