“COVID-19 has really opened a new door for STARability and our participants. Seeing our stars shine on this online platform brings happiness all around. I do miss seeing them in person for so many reasons; the smiles, the laughs, and the times they would interact with each other. I have felt that my connection with participants has grown through this time of self-quarantine. I’m just so proud of everyone and their accomplishments through this online program. At the end of the day this only makes us stronger as a TEAM.”
—Alexi Mata, Instructor, Trailblazer Academy
“During these times, I have missed working hands-on with our participants and being able to see their smiling faces in person. I know being home can be difficult for them, especially not being able to do the activities we are used to doing, like working out at the gym and playing basketball. But I’m happy that I can teach them different exercises so they stay healthy and fit at home!”
Andrew has been leading a popular weekly Fitness class over zoom for Trailblazer Academy participants, as well as contributed to several pre-recorded health and wellness video series available to all STAR participants. Check out his new at-home workout series on our Facebook page!
