The next athlete I would like to recognize just might be our most improved athlete over the last year.
When she first arrived at CFR she wasn’t much of an athlete. She wasn’t in great shape. She was kind of awkward. She couldn’t workout for more than a minute or two without being exhausted.
From day one we knew she was committed. We knew she was determined to get better. We have witnessed her perseverance 3 or 4 times a week for the last year. Her perseverance has allowed her to make so much progress. So much PROGRESS!
Without a doubt, the only thing that matches her perseverance is her attitude. She is always happy. She is always positive. She is always smiling.
Oh yeah, and I love the way she says “What’s Up Coach” with her distinct accent.
Without further delay please help us recognize Moreblessing “MB” Dzivakwe for her Perseverance and Progress.
