"Hi, my name is Niny Bulla. I'm a coach at Sugar Land Gymnastics. For the past two years, I have been coaching a group of kids from "The Next Step Academy" that have different levels of Autism. Working with this group has been an amazing experience, on a personal, as well as a professional aspect. The children have helped me grow as a person. Teaching these kids gymnastics has helped them achieve things they weren't able to do before. Things like: gross motor skills, communication, following direction, and perseverance, as well as, growing self-confidence. Every day their teacher have come to us and told about their growth. They are crazy for gymnastics! Every Friday they come to the gym ready and so excited with a big smile on their face. Over all, this experience has helped not just them, but me as well. Thank you Discover Fitness Foundation for making this possible!"
