Passion and Impacts
Christabel’s passion for joining Kids and Math is to give back to society. She upholds and stands for Excellence, Sacrifice, Justice and Fairness .“I believe anything worth doing should be done with excellence. I love to sacrifice and give back to society through voluntarism because I have received much also from society. The world becomes a better place when people give back to society what they have received ”.
Christabel has made some attitudinal change contributions in Kids and Math. She made each person in a class she taught, buy a notebook to at least solve two mathematical problems daily. She believes this activity will make the students develop a culture of discipline, love and consistency for mathematics.
Her future prospects for Kids and Math is to help give back to our society through selfless voluntarism. “I was taught and nurtured by good mathematics tutors which spurred in me a loving passion for the subject. Most students in our country do not have good mathematics tutors which gives them the wrong perception of mathematics. Mathematics is challenging, but a loving experience with a good tutor, consistency and perseverance will create a positive attitude towards learning mathematics. Besides, Mathematics is the Language of the Universe!”.
