Young Women of Excellence Sponsor, Kelly Lupis
Kelly Lupis is entering her 13th year of teaching and her passion for connecting, influencing and guiding students continues to grow immensely throughout the years. As a certified personal fitness teacher Kelly has adapted the Yoga and meditation program at Lake Mary as well as the Young Women of Excellence program (YWOE).
In her YWOE class, students will learn to take risks, gain confidence and embrace the principles of gratitude and growth. Students will also learn to embrace self love, responsibility, commitment and most importantly listen and respect the difference of opinions of their fellow classmates.
Being involved in the YWOE program will give female students the opportunity to enhance and grow into becoming the strong, wise, confident and dependable Queens that are inside of each woman! The time spent in the classroom will provide positive change and self-reflection. This will grant opportunities for students to learn about themselves and others while developing into the best versions of oneself in all aspects of life!
