Big congratulations to our Coach of the Month Wynter! Wynter coaches at a variety different KING programs ranging from recess, after-school and specialized performing arts enrichment classes. Wynter has recently accepted a position to join the Up2Us Sports Coaches program and continue to grow and develop with KING. Thank you Wynter for all your hard work and dedication to the kids you work with.
What is one word you would use to describe yourself as a child?
One word that would best describe me as a child is extremely imaginative. I used to have tons of imaginary friends that lived in different worlds and did different things. I used to make up different songs and dances and would pretend like I was auditioning for a dance competition.
What movie or novel character do you most identify with?
I most identify with the character Maddy from the novel "Everything,Everything". Despite her illness that kept her from going outside she fought against the odds and left her home to explore the world anyway. That reminds me of myself a lot because I will always strive to come out my shell. When someone tells me that I can't do something it only gives me the motivation to try harder to do it anyway.
Fill in the blank: If you really knew me, you'd know_____
If you really knew me you'd know that I've been doing musical theater since I was 5 years old. My first musical was "Annie". I fell in love with theater at such a young age and I love theater until this day. It gives me a chance to channel my childhood imagination skills.
How do you think you’ve grown so far with KING?
While working for KING I think I have grown tremendously, not just within the job but I've made personal growth as well. Starting at KING six months ago as a summer camp coach not knowing much about being a youth mentor to then becoming coach of the month twice in the same month has shown me that I can do anything I put my mind to. With KING I have grown to be more confident in my abilities to teach and inspire children.
What do you like about KING so far?
What I like about KING so far is the support I receive from all of the senior staff members. I love the fact that they push me to be the best version of me that I can be. They want to see me succeed and keep reaching for the stars and it helps me realize my true potential.
