My Student Christina’s Story

20 Aug

A Little lady I’m most proud of and a short story I would like to share with my FB friends.

Christina Izzo is a student of mine. She came to me as a young child for a couple of yrs and life took her in different directions as it does with all of us. She had been away from the PANKRATION training for a few years….until recently. Christina applied and was accepted to entered the Miss Teen Canada Pageant to represent the province of Quebec. When asked what her Talent part of the show would be, Christina honored us without hesitation and chose to showcase her PANKRATION training. Having been out if training for a few years she came back and told me the news and we went straight to work. She not only made up for the time she had been absent from the school but exceeded every expectation I had of putting together a complex little skit for her to do. She is not only talented but a tenacious young lady who have no regard to any obstacle. She nailed down the routine with great perseverance and skil. I am proud of you Christina as all Quebecers will be as well. I wish you the best of luck as you are off to Toronto tomorrow for the start of the pageant’s preliminary activities. I know you will do us proud!! Here’s a preview of her routine…one her father had to learn as well, being a student of mine also. Good luck sweetie!!
