While most of her classmates want to be teachers, doctors or engineers in the future, Ly wants to be an athletics coach. It’s a passion of hers. ‘I find that running helps me to be healthy and brings me alive. My body feels different as if it has more energy.’ Since grade ten, she has won medals for running at school and in district athletic competitions.
With her love of this sport she wants to inspire the younger generation to run and recommends running to her relatives and friends. ‘Anyone can do it anytime, anywhere’, she told us. She is in her last year of high school and is working hard to make her dream come true.
