Read how our scholarship winner and fitness leader Aracely has kept community moving in Distrito Italia during the pandemic and gym closure.
Aracely has studied to be a personal trainer under the Pesas y Poder scholarship program, and she volunteers her time to lead fitness classes. Her encouragement, empathy and guidance brings people of all ages into our gym program. She also instituted weekly gym meetings to talk about respect and community, making sure everyone feels welcome. Aware of widespread health concerns and the high prevalence of diabetes in her community, she would like to study nutrition next, and we will support her!
