Paddlers Blog-Los Amigos Elementary
I feel blessed every time that I have an opportunity to speak about PossAbilities and the Paralympics.
Well, this past week I was fortunate enough to meet a great group of young people and their attentive teacher, Ms. Linville, at the Los Amigos Elementary School in Rancho Cucamonga, Ca.
I want to thank all my new friends for welcoming me into their classroom and listening to me share about my adversities while training and competing at outrigger canoeing.
While working towards my goal of representing the USA at the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro.
My favorite part of the day was answering all their great questions and getting to know everyone.
It gives meaning to my mantra:
“Nothing just happens, you have to strive to achieve it.”
