As a cancer survivor, Marine understood the importance of health and wellness from a young age. She believes her journey has changed her for the better and is committed to making a positive impact on the people around her, while continuing to grow as a person, no matter the challenge.
“The Y is not only a place to go to work out, but to grow as a person. I’ve become a better version of myself not only by developing new skills, but also by having the space to become more confident and find my voice through my work.”
Working for a community centre allowed her to work on projects that would make a difference in helping the community stay active and healthy, which is valuable to her because it should be something everyone can afford.
“I’m really happy to be working here, I have a great team around me, mentors that I look up to and who empower me to always do better, and just amazing people who have the same goals and dedication to the Y as I do. I really feel like I belong.”
