When there is a will, there is a way
On January 2018, our 6th grade Community Service session counted on the presence of a very special guest, María Petit. During her presentation, she explained what life has been like since she lost her vision at the age of 17. María has since then run marathons, trains Tacfit regularly, does yoga (and is getting her certification to become a yoga instructor), works as public relations for a fashion company and travels alone or with friends.
During today’s session, María inspired our 6th graders to overcome obstacles and hard times when feeling different or unable to succeed. She has given them a great example of self-kindness and motivation. I hope that this message can also inspire you and remind you of how very blessed we are.
