Hello, I'm Susana
As a child I struggled physically to do a lot of day-to-day tasks. I would tell my parents I was tired, and they will respond "Don't worry you can do it" This helped me be stronger and helped me keep pushing. Going to P.E. in grade school we had a huge space to run, and I would always push harder to run with my friend.
My friend was goal was always to do her best in running and I kept pushing myself even harder focusing on that same goal as her. I enjoyed that friendly competition not racing her but helping each other keep ourselves accountable. This is where my being active journey started. I had a good time learning what was the best way to run.
Here is a picture of my son and I going for a walk.
As I grew up in to a young adult I believed everything with me was normal until when I was already in College and I took a health class taking my blood pressure that was extremely high and we had to figure out what was going on with me. I was always physically active and eating as healthy as possible with vegetarian lifestyle and high blood pressure was an unknown cause until we went to the hospital. I was diagnosed with a birth hearth problem. When I was born with Aortic Coarctation in some cases kids have surgeries at a young age to fix this and I was already a young adult.
My lifestyle that I had previously before the discovery helped. Also my early stage of thinking that I am strong and I can do it. Now it's been over 15 years of the surgery and want to help others live a fun healthy lifestyle. I believe we can do this as a community. I am a mom of 2 children and I understand how sometimes how this is not possible for ourselves to do with them. I want to impact kids lives into knowing they can do it and they are strong. Your kids will be learning empowerment words with fun interactive activities with 8 great mind and body principles that can impact their lives through there lifetime.
