I'm a Physical Education (PE) teacher in MOE. I believe in staying healthy and staying fit. I always share with my students that the purpose of PE is to learn the various skills for the different games and enjoy a lifetime of active healthy living!
Being involved in President's Challenge has always been one of my to-do list items. When the invitation came to be one of the 200 runners, there was no stopping. I hope to do my small part to help bring joy and hope to those who truly need the support, and also to motivate and encourage them in whatever they undertake.
We live in a multi-racial and multi-cultural society. We should also appreciate things that we have in life and help support those who are in greater needs than us. We can each do our part to contribute to make the society a better place for everyone.
