It focuses on public health and better access to high quality, muscle friendly training equipment and training gear.
A well grounded and shy young lady, Esmerelda presented her award to the SVSG President Siliniu Lina Chang and her SVSG (Junior) collegues upon returning home, to acknowledge their support and prayers
And as a member the SVSG (Junior), Esmeralda has inspired volunteers in the youth sub-group of SVSG to keep pushing the limits with this wonderful achievement. Esmeralda was selected one of the winners from a list of 600 applicants, 19 speakers and the only Pacific Islander to be selected. According to Esmeralda, it is a humbling and blessed experience.
Thank you Esmerelda for instilling the essence of a young woman, to be strong, to be independent and to be resilient in your sports wear brand.
What a great example of hard work,determination and commitment. Congratulations Esmeralda. We are all so proud of you!
