As an educator my main goal is to encourage the youth regardless of race, gender, age, and capability to engage in sports. I would like to emphasize the importance of exercise, fitness, and health. I aim not just for the physical improvement of the kids but as well as their mental, emotional, and social development by instilling discipline, hard work, and perseverance at a young age. I want to show them that with the right mindset, anything is possible.
