A motivational camp aptly named, My Life My Choice, was held in early February at SMK Ave Maria Convent Ipoh. Forty five cheerleaders between the ages of 13 to 17 showed up for the two-day camp organised by Miracles for Malaysia (M4M).
Miracles for Malaysia is an unofficial group formed by youths for youths. Its objective is to transform the youths of today into better Malaysians. The programmed activities were geared towards enhancing the cheerleaders’ self-esteem and establishing a lasting relationship among the participants.
Motivational subjects such as Understanding Myself, Teamwork, Happiness Formula, Power of Beliefs, Self-Management and Contribution were taught. These subjects correspond to the cheerleaders’ lifestyles and are of importance to them. Team-building games were held to instil teamwork amongst the campers.
Ave Maria Convent cheerleaders, known as the Titans, hope to inspire others with their achievements. They want to contribute to society by using the potentials that they have in them.
M4M’s secretary, Sharon Jessy said that their next step would be making M4M an official group for youths. She is prepared to organise similar camps if asked. Sharon can be contacted at 016-517 0950.
