I'm French-Caribbean and made NZ my home in 2008. I discovered Zumba 8 years ago in one of those never-ending TV commercials, bought the DVD box set and enjoyed it on and off in the safety and comfort of my living room. Then 3 years ago one of my friends, Nai, became a ZIN and got me to come to her classes. Since then I met a lot of beautiful, loving and charming people. I'm feeling more and more confident with myself, so much so, that now I'm a ZIN, member of the awesome Team Azucar and taking the occasional classes to help out my team mates.
With Zumba I might actually be able to shed those extra kg that I've been fighting to lose but until then, Zumba is helping me getting over my shyness at meeting people and making me feel better about myself, all that while having fun with the girls!
