(Isabella shown wearing our Spring Break wristband set)
Truth be told we love a good smile and have learned how to 'sense' a smile even through just the type written words in an email! And we sensed NOT just a smile but a very articulate, smart upbeat vibe from the--request for sponsorship--email we recently from 17 year old Isabella Leano of Coral Gables, Florida. We were further interested by the fact that Isabella had indicated she had received a Wristpect Sport wristband from a friend and took to investigating our sponsorship program on our site. Gotta love those that take the initiative!
Isabella's tennis journey has been going strong for over 10 years! And she timed her sponsorship request very keenly as she has just entered the throws of the college selection and recruitment process; and did her first round with a company called: Donovan Tennis Strategies. She is an honor student enrolled in an international baccalaureate program and recognizes that academics are equally important to finding a great tennis coach and program!

Since connecting with Isabella we have learned that--as she states in her own words---she has a beautiful: 'eclectic ethnic background' of a Cuban mother and a Filipino father. She has a little sister and brother and a mini golden-doodle. She also speaks English, Spanish AND French fluently and has played the piano since the age of five. And she's definitely a keeper as she loves trying different foods just as we do!
Thank you Isabella! The next time we visit we will be asking Isabella what colleges she is narrowing her list down to AND if she is classical trained in piano (or had a more contemporary/free style training)...
