I’m here to talk about the YMCA-YWCA. The YMCA-YWCA is a really good place to work out, and to bring your children to play and have fun. There are so many opportunities, games, sports, and day care. I used to play basketball there. I was one of their team members when I was younger. It was lots of fun. Every time I go it helped me stay fit, energetic and always has a good place in the community. The YMCA-YWCA also helped me stay out of trouble and not to associate with any kind of gangs, which helped me out to be a better person today. I am 20 years old. I’m healthy and physically fit, drug and alcohol free.
I have a little boy. His name is Deshaun Jayden Jameson Kent. When he gets older, I’m going to get him involved into the YMCA-YWCA. So I know he will be in a safe place to be healthy and having him playing sports, and all kinds of activities. I got introduced to the YMCA-YWCA through my school Eagle Circle. I’m glad they did. I still go to the three til this date, March 5, 2010. My first day was in 1997.
In the year 2002. I was trying to quit smoking many of times, but I failed. I tried everything; the patches -Nicorette gum. I still didn’t have any luck. So I tried going to the YMCA-YWCA and eating regular gum. I started to see better results, I wasn’t craving or really thinking of cigarettes. It took me 3 months to fully quit. Then I started on a new task. I tried to quit drinking in 2005. I found it was easier to quit drinking then smoking. I still haven’t smoked or started drinking. It’s been over 5 years now. The YMCA-YWCA helped out a lot with this goal.
