Giving back is the greatest feeling! I never thought that growing up as an extremely shy child that was constantly bullied, and having few friends through to finishing high school that I would end up doing what I am doing today. I am honored that many look up to me as an inspiration and mentor and that I have so much respect from my students and parents. I am on a mission to change lives. The Hospital For Sick Kids was so overwhelmed by our martial arts classes and the positive psychological effect it had on their most challenging patients that they wrote about us in their medical journals! My goal in life is to leave this planet better than I found it and to positively affect as many people as I can! There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time & energy to help others without expecting anything in return – Nelson Mandela #sickkidshospital #sickkidsfightback #charity #givingback #taekwondo
