Hi Everyone! My name is Francesca and I am a Zumba enthusiast. My mom introduced me to Zumba in June of 2011, and it has changed my life ever since. I am so passionate about Zumba because it just feels like a party every single time! Over the last couple months, Zumba has helped me cope with stress, loss, and just made my life so much happier. People say Zumba is like a cult exercise group, but I see it more as a family. We are so supportive of each other and my instructor always knows how to make me smile, even in the roughest times. I’m 18 right now, and my goal is to become a Zumba instructor very soon and hopefully teach some classes at whatever college I decide to attend.
As for the name of my blog, I call it Zumba. Love. For a Cause. It’s for a cause because, although right now I may just be posting about Zumba, when I become an instructor, I want to stand on a platform and Zumba for suicide prevention and mental health. At 18 years old, I am a suicide survivor. When I say survivor, I mean I have lost loved ones to suicide. Seven to be exact, and my own best friend struggles with mental health issues every day. I am passionate about Zumba and passionate about Suicide Awareness and Prevention, so one day I hope to participate in or host a couple Suicide Awareness/Mental Health Zumbathons.
Okay, enough words and ZUMBA. LOVE. FOR A CAUSE. <3
