Hi! My name is Mihaela, I'm 23 years old and I'm from Romania! I did gymnastics since I was 4 years old up to the age of 19.
I started with rhythmic gymnastics but only did 4 years. The coach was beating us very badly. And girls older than us were beating us. But they probably did that because they were traumatized in their turn. I remember how the coach was waiting for everyone in his office and beating them. He beat them with whatever object he could find near him. With the rope, with the stick on the ribbon, with anything and I saw them full of bruises. I left there at the age of 8. I went to another city to continue gymnastics but there I was alone and away from my parents. I was just a child and had gone through many from an early age. I stayed only 1 year and returned to my city.
When I was 9, I started doing gymnastics again in my city. But this time aerobic gymnastics. I managed to do gymnastics performance with another trainer. A wonderful coach I owe a lot to. I started to love gymnastics and to do everything to be the best. From the age of 15, next my coach, I started to train children aged 3-7 years. I had a huge responsibility. But I really liked doing that.
Now I'm at the sports faculty. I love children, I like to guide them, I teach them and I like the energy and joy in their eyes.
I want to open a gym, to train kids. But I want to offer them all the best. I want to buy a special floor for gymnastics. I trained on a simple carpet and it was very difficult for me. I want these children to benefit from all the conditions but I need your help. It's a huge amount we don't have. Please help me fulfill my dream. Help me give children the conditions they need to develop and train properly! Thank you!
