Sports has always been a part of my life. Bowling, table tennis and badminton were my favourite during my college years. Over the past 20 years, I also grew an interest in tennis, line dance, Zumba and other fitness exercises. I started teaching line dance and Zumba at 105 Gibson in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
I have experienced much joy in this teaching role. I have observed my students becoming motivated and inspired by dancing and exercising. I am giving my 100% to my students and I often pray for my classes and those in need. At the same time, I also received support and comfort from them especially when my husband passed away in December 2015. They walked with me during a dark period of my life. Overtime, we have built a stronger relationship through mutual support. Now we have dance parties every three months and we enjoy the wonderful fellowship time. I can see that a community is growing through my classes.
It is so blessed to see my students coming every week with joy and enthusiasm. I am very thankful to God for this rewarding experience, His love, mercy, guidance and the opportunity to share the Christian faith through dancing and exercising.
